You can always worry about possibly scenarios and sometimes
you play "What if" so much that you are held back by
imaginary environments.  The fact is that the RID algorithm
dug us in a hole and we had to pull ourselves outside

So far, the cases we were really concerned about have been
non-issues.  Ironically enough, the main problems we had
with 3.0.23 is that we weren't aggressive enough and allowed
the RID algorithm to stay with smbpasswd which meant that
it operated differently than the tdb or ldap implementations.
