[Samba] Change winbindd UID mapping

I'm running Samba 3.6.6 on Ubuntu Quantal.

I have a need to manually assign some of the UID mapping on a samba
domain member file server. I have used tdbtool to add the correct
mapping record to winbindd_idmap.tdb. However, I am at a loss as to
how to force that change to "propagate" so as to show in the
permissions structure of the file system and in the output of such
commands as 'getent passwd.' I have restarted all of the samba related
services including winbind.

Kind Regards,
