[Samba] Moving to another idmap backend

Hi all,

I've got winbind up and running on two servers, but the UID/GIDs don't 
match up.  After educating myself a little, I think I would like to use 
the idmap_rid backend.  I have set up the smb.conf's accordingly, but 
after restarting samba/winbind services, my UIDs and GIDs are still the 
old ones.  I realize this will break stuff on the filesystem, but am 
prepared to fix it by hand.
