[Samba] net usermap? or something like that?

Before I upgraded Samba, things worked :)

My samba box is a member of the domain, and my NT and Unix username are
the same, so it was allowing my samba session to modify my files as if I
were that Unix user.

Now, with the idmap stuff, my NT userid is mapped to uid 10000, which is
not my unix UID, so I do not have permissiosn to delete files, etc...

net has the groupmap which lets you say that this NT group should be
treated as this Unix group.

Is there a way to do this with users?   I tried using the old username
map, but I am guessing that doesn't work anymore (hard to find docs for
3 - my smb.conf is missing all the parameters in the man page - ouch).

Thanks for any more tips.
