Never mind - of course this is well documented in the most excellent
'The Official SAMBA-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide'...
For anyone curious - it is not generally recommended to use the tdbsam
backend for sites with 250+ users, but this is only because these sites
likely will be spread out and require BDCs and multiple servers...
They specifically mention one site using the tdbsam backend with 4,500+
users with no performance problems whatsoever...
Sorry for the noise.
