[Samba] Samba 3.0.0beta3: Problem looking up SID of root

Interestingly, I have just reinstalled beta2 from source, and I get the
same problem, except looking up the uid of the root SID with wbinfo -S
gives 0, which I believe is the correct result. wbinfo -s still fails,
and I still get the unresolved SID when viewing from Windows.
