[Samba] How to rename a user (in passdb.tdb?)

Either my previous message went unnoticed, or nobody knows? Since I didn't
find anything through Google, I will try again here:
I need to rename a few users: change their login, but leave everything else
as is, like their password, etc.
On the Linux side usermod seems to have done what I wanted:
usermod -l $newname -c $newfullname -d /home/$newname -m $oldname
For Samba, I cannot find any command or option to pdbedit that would do that.
Before, I could have edited smbpasswd by hand, but now it seems everything
is in /var/lib/samba/passdb.tdb.
I am using "smbd version 3.0.2a-Debian", and my smb.conf has
passdb backend = tdbsam
If I just create new users with the new user name, I'm afraid their Windows
profile and user registry will not work.
Thanks for any help,
