Yes, it looks odd, but this is how we have decided to handle IDMAP_BOTH.
Given the users are going to come via winbind (in order to have got an
IDMAP_BOTH in the first place), it seems reasonable just to fix

The alternative is to double to size of the ACL by having both UID and
GID entries for every IDMAP_BOTH result.
