In the samba HOWTO collection here
Creating an IDMAP Database Dump File
there is a command
net idmap restore /var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb < idmap_dump.txt

the point is: it doesn't work. It just does nothing, except of printing 
a lot of lines like this:
ignoring invalid line []
ignoring invalid line 

Looks like the winbindd_idmap.tdb file is not changed after this command 
has been run.

The actual dump was done like this:
net idmap dump /var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb > idmap_dump.txt

The system I'm testing it on is Debian 6.1, samba 3.5.6.
