What kind of problems can you have? I did it with these lines:

	idmap config * :backend = tdb
	idmap config * :range = 10000-99999
	idmap config DOMAIN : backend = rid
	idmap config DOMAIN : range = 100000-199999

Everything just works and getent/id show me UIDs/GIDs that imediately tell 
me which SID they correspond to.
