Samba 3.3.3 on Centos 5.3 has problems with profile acls on the profiles
share, so today I updated to samba 3.3.4.  This solves the profile acls
problem but appears to have introduced a new bug.

Would someone who has 3.3.4 please try the following:

1. Execute the following and record the values reported:
	net getlocalsid
	net getdomainsid

2. Change the workgroup name

3. stop smbd, nmbd, and winbind

4. delete the secrets.tdb file

5. Start samba daemons: smbd nmbd winbind

6. Reset the original domain sid using:
	net setdomainsid S-1-5-21-xxxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx
per the values obtained from 'net getdomainsid'

The error message is:	"Cannot fetch local SID."

I am requesting validation to make sure this is not an isolated problem.
I'll file a bug report if someone can confirm this is not an isolated issue.
