With Samba 3.0beta2 (and current CVS) if you have an entry in LDAP with
both the SambaSID and the uidNumber it should use that mapping.

Likewise for groups, with that sambaGroupMapping.

You should consider your case carefully - only do this if you need to,
and consider if you want to adjust the value of 'algrithmic RID base' to
avoid having an algorithmic RID in that space.
