[Samba] pdbedit bug?

If I try to do the following:
/usr/local/samba/bin/pdbedit -a -u someusername -U 5000
This works as one would think, the account is created with a RID of 5000.

But when I do:
/usr/local/samba/bin/pdbedit -a -m -u somemachinename -U 3000
It does not work as you would think.  The account is created but with 
the RID of the Unix UID*2+1000 not, a RID of 3000 as specificed on the 
command line.  And if you try to modify that RID after the account is 
created with a:
/usr/local/samba/bin/pdbedit -r -u somemachinename$ -U 3000
It just causes all kinds of problems.

Is there a way around this, is this a bug in the pdbedit program?    
Please respond directly to me at jordan at coe.utah.edu.
