[Samba] The 'nobody' account (mapping not found for gidNumber: 99)

I am using a samba domain controller with an LDAP backend. I am also
using samba domain controllers with this setup similar to those
described in the 'Domain Members, Updating Samba and Migration' chapter
of the Samba By Example book.
On the domain member servers winbind stores the UID<->SID in the Idmap
section of the directory. This appears to be working correctly, however
i think there is a problem with the nobody account that is present on
the local system (in /etc/passwd) and the nobody account in the
Directory (as created by smbldap-populate). I see the following entry
reported in log.winbindd
> [2005/05/05 00:18:25, 0] sam/idmap_ldap.c:ldap_get_sid_from_id(525)
> ldap_get_sid_from_id: mapping not found for gidNumber: 99
I understand the winbind does not like the fact that there are two
nobody accounts on the system. Does anybody know a workaround for this
problem ?. I don't think it is a good idean to delete either of the acounts.
Any idea's, comments welcome ?
