Please provide me with an example on how to use this tool to change a
uid of a user to what I want the uid to be.  I am confused on what it
thinks are keys.  It has a keys command:
key 11 bytes: UID 119989
key 44 bytes: S-1-5-21-54348060-1989963526-242692186-2277
key 44 bytes: S-1-5-21-54348060-1989963526-242692186-8749
key 45 bytes: S-1-5-21-54348060-1989963526-242692186-24986

But if I go to type tdb> show UID 119989
tdb> open winbindd_idmap.tdb
tdb> show UID 119989
fetch failed

What is the key?  UID 119989?  119989?  11 bytes: UID 119989?  Sigh. 
No examples are shown in the manpage.
What I really want to do is locate the uid assocated with a specific
sid and change it to something else.   Please help.
