I had the same problem on 3.4.7 moving from tdb to ldap. I also had get 
rid of nscd which for some reason Debian always installs with Samba. I 
was confused because everything would come right after a reboot. I 
thought that Samba is emulating Windows a little TOO closely!

I wrote this little script while I was messing with different idmap options:
# stop samba, reset cache and restart
/etc/init.d/winbind stop
/etc/init.d/samba stop
rm -f /var/run/samba/gencache.tdb
rm -f /var/cache/samba/*.tdb
/etc/init.d/samba start
/etc/init.d/winbind start
/etc/init.d/nslcd restart
