[Samba] Samba 3.0 Alpha 23 and windbindd

Hi folks,

I've been using the samba alpha releases for a bit now. I'm really 
satisfied and grateful as it really helps out in our infrastructure. I do 
however experience an issue that is really stumping me. The problem exists 
in the mapping of winbind GID/UIDs to names. From time to time, the GID 
will just change. For example, in our environment, the Group JCNTV/Domain 
Admins is mapped to GID 60005. Well today, I just realized that the GID # 
changed to a number other than 60005, which totally screwed up my 
permissions, acls and etc. Since it seems that winbindd controls these 
numbers, is there a way to create a static mapping? Or at least turn off 
this behavior/issue. Any help would be much appreciated it.
