Hmmm... we haven't installed SFU - just downloading SFU 3.5 now. Using 
idmap uid and idmap gid in smb.conf results in winbindd creating a local 
idmap tdb file (read the smb.conf man page) - but I think you need to be 
using idmap backend = ldap:ldap://yourserver instead of idmap uid/gid.
because you want winbindd to get the uid/gid from the ldap attributes in 
AD. Check the section in the idmapper HOWTO
and smb.conf man page.
