[Samba] Help! winbind idmap corrupt!

Our problems with the attempted upgrade to 2.2.8 continue. 
On a production machine running 2.2.3, I backed out of the 
2.2.8 upgrade due to winbind strangeness reported in earlier 
post. Things *appeared* normal, until this morning, when I 
noticed that an 'ls -l' no longer shows domain usernames, and 
a 'chacl -l' also no longer shows names, only winbind ids. 
Furthermore, comparing these ids to the output of 'getent 
passwd' or 'getent group', it appears the idmap is totally 
messed up. I have searched but not found any posts telling 
how to rebuild this file -surely there must be a way?

There are 400 domain users involved, so rebuilding by hand is 
not an option...
