Hi Piotr

I had all these problems too... and posted here, but no solution.  The only 
solution I found was to delete the group/user entirely, and specify the RID 
at the same time as you create the group/user.  It's ok then.  However, once 
I had the error (although the RID changed), I had a corrupt entry in 
passsb.tdb which required me to erase it and start again.

If you find a proper solution I would love to know!
