[Samba] Using "pdbedit" to list users - inconsistent result?

I am using Samba on Debian 5.0 (Lenny) - Samba version 3.2.5. The
smb.conf defines the user database in the standard way :

passdb backend = tdbsam:/etc/samba/private/passdb.tdb

If I use pdbedit to list all users in the user database, user "drew"
does not appear :

# pdbedit -L|grep drew

If I query user drew on the pdbedit command-line, he appears :

# pdbedit drew
drew:1054:Drew Smith,,,

Why is there this discrepancy and is it a problem?
