[Samba] uid and gid problems with linux as client and server

I'm using samba 3.0.4 (stock debian packages) as a client and a server. 
The problem is I have a different uid on server (1001) to my client 
(1000) so when I try and access a file I appear to the client as not 
being the owner. I have tried the uid and gid options in smbmount, but 
they do not seem to have any affect (I assume the unix cifs extensions 
are overiding them).

On the server side I have a create mask and a directory mask of 775 but 
this also has no affect.

This is driving me spare! Is there any way to disable the unix cifs 
extensions or to map between uids?
