There are multiple methods winbind can use to generate the uid<->sid mapping. 
The default being tdb, which just generates a uid on the fly. As you noticed 
it does not necessarily sync between machines. If you need uid sync, you are 
better off looking at the rid module, which generates a uid based on the 
windows sid.
