Turns out that if I return the ldb_errstring() for this, it claims that a 
record that doesn't seem to be in the database already exists. Like this:

Adding a new record failed: Entry objectSid=S-1-22-1-1002 already exists

opening the ldb in ldbedit shows that my database looks like this:
# editing 2 records
# record 1
dn: objectSid=S-1-22-1-1001
uidNumber: 1000
objectSid: S-1-22-1-1001
distinguishedName: objectSid=S-1-22-1-1001

# record 2
sequenceNumber: 2
whenChanged: 20080213103223.0Z
distinguishedName: @BASEINFO

so obviously there's no Entry objectSid=S-1-22-1-1002 that already exists.

The thing that's really confusing the heck out of me is that I can add two 
objectSid entries, provided one is a local unix user where the mapping is 
created in my uid_to_sid function, and the other is created from my 
sid_to_uid function. However, both functions only work once.

Any clues?
