[Samba] Conflicting RID creation

With samba 3.0.34 I have the issue described here
That is "smbpasswd -a joe" gives RID=2*UID+1000
while "net rpc user add joe" gives the value of the sambaNextRid
attribute of the sambaDomainName LDAP entry.

Also "smbpasswd -am machine" gives RID=2*UID+1000
while directly joining the domain gives RID=sambaNextRid

This is a problem because I'm trying to update from 3.0.22
where sambaNextRid is never used (actually it doesn't even
exist in my LDAP database).

Is there something I can do to ensure that RID=2*UID+1000 in every case?
Or else what should I do to avoid conflicts between my current RIDs
(generated by 3.0.22) and those that will be generated by 3.0.34?
