This is one of the problems with winbindd in Samba domains.  What you
need to do is configure idmap_ldap to talk to a central IDMAP server,
which contains mappings back to the UIDs on the samba PDC.

Most samba-winbind-samba setups however simply use nss_ldap and set
'winbind trusted domains only = yes'.  How easy this is to cludge into
the snap box I'm not sure (it's been a while since I worked there, and
all I can remember is that almost every config file is generated in one
way or another :-)
