[Samba] So no conversion from group_mapping.ldb to group_mapping.tdb?

I recently upgraded an AD member server from Samba 3.5.15 to Samba 3.6.9 
and found that I had lost all the existing local group mappings.

I see that the group mapping file has gone from group_mapping.ldb to 

I asked on this list as well as searching the web, Samba documentation 
(which still seems focused on version 3.5), and Samba Wiki and found 
nothing on a method to convert/migrate information stores in the 
group_mapping.ldb file to the new group_mapping.tdb - is that correct?

Because of the way Active Directory is managed at out site I store 
dozens of local groups and their memberships in that file.

I found NOTHING in the Samba 3.6.x release notes warning me of the 
change to the group_mapping file.

Just wanted to confirm that there is no conversion utility that I missed 
and that I am on my own to migrate that information.

Thank you
