It should never be 1000
Please review

You could divine the SID if you know the UID and the RID calculation,
presuming that samba has generated all of your user SIDs.  Otherwise, if
you're using LDAP you could either look in the LDAP object or use
smbldap-usershow.  If not, you can use pdbedit -L -v <username> which should
give you all of the windows related info.

ps. Sorry for spamming you Tomasz, but I forgot to reply-to-all the first
