This would be significantly less frustrating for all of us if you would
attempt debugging the source yourself.  

I'm sure this isn't a difficult bug to solve, so why not give it a go. 

Some starting hints:
 - git grep gidNumber
 - increase debug level to cover any existing, relelvent debug
 - Add debug statements to cover the full flow control of any apparently
relevant functions:
   DEBUG(0, ("debug message"));
 - start samba under gdb using :
   gdb --args samba -i -M single
 - use samba_start_debugger() to launch gdb under particular conditions

I know you have said this is beyond you, but I do believe this is a
skill you can learn.
