After upgrading from samba 3.0.7 to samba-3.0.9
it appears that algorithmic rid base is now checked
to be larger then 1000 . 
Because of this I get the follwoing error when trying to log in:

and logging in as a domain user is no longer possible. I reverted to 3.0.7 and 
could log in again.
All my servers use algorithmic rid base
of 400. As it was never clear to me from any documentation that
it should be greater than 1000 (it only states "is normally 1000 or greater" 
in the docs), I choose 400.
Where in the source can I change this hard check of the algorithmic
rid base to also get it working with my rid base , because I am stuck
to 3.0.7 now for appx. 30 samba servers , which I would like to upgrade.
