[Samba] Downgrade TDB files?

I've tried Samba 3.4.3 and it upgraded my passdb.tdb file. After testing
I concluded that I'm not going to upgrade to 3.4.3 yet, because 'getent
passwd' was broken in recent BlastWave Solaris packages:


Now, after I downgraded the Samba back to 3.0.32, client connections
started to malfunction. I saw these in my logs:

[2010/01/04 10:54:08, 0] ../samba-3.0.32/source/passdb/pdb_tdb.c:(1049)
  tdbsam_getsampwnam: failed to
open /etc/opt/csw/samba/private/passdb.tdb!
[2010/01/04 11:06:13, 0] ../samba-3.0.32/source/passdb/pdb_tdb.c:(848)
  tdbsam_open: unknown version => 4

This causes winbind to coredump...

Now, I've backed up passdb.tdb and restart samba, because this samba
instance is just a domain member, and everything seems to work. But I
wonder, is there a way to downgrade these files? Or is the
backup/restore only solution?
