I take it this test is an old one and Administrator and Domain Users
have been mapped in idmap.ldb for the last 5 years at least, so
wouldn't Administrator having the UID '0' and Domain Users having the
GID '100' have been a problem for all that time ?

I cannot see that mapping administrator to root on a DC is a problem,
in fact it would probably be a bigger problem if it wasn't.
