Hello Bob,

I recently saw similair problems updating CentOS 4 (whitle label RE4) to 
3.0.25c. See tread IDMAP RID problems and documentation started on 19 dec

But I didn't receive the answers I was looking for. For me, using the the 
new syntax with RID broke getent. With using this old syntax I got it back 
working. But this setup misses the BUILTIN groups and the  new advertised 
smb.conf snipped
        idmap backend = rid
        idmap uid = 1000-1000000
        idmap gid = 1000-1000000

So maybe one of the experts can shine a light on this, because it's looks 
like this problems occurs on several differnt  older distro's.
