and same here... but... i got rid of it. 
It has something to do with the order of setting the nis UID and GID. 
What i did, i dropped the complete samba db ( aka new provisioning ) 
after the new provisioning it set 

 idmap config DOMAIN:range = 5000-40000
in smb.conf
changed it straight after that in the samba sam database. 
( default is 10000, i lowered to 5000 ) 
the i first  did set the group gid 
and then the users. 

and it was gone.. 

but what it caused i dont know.
