Packages.  Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

$ locate idmap.ldb

Using a variation on Louis' script: 4-jessie-samba-DC.sh

As I said, originally: This is the second time creating a test user for
experimentation.  The first time I did it: At some point the "missing"
record suddenly appeared.  I deleted the user in order to start all
over again, and the above issue reoccurs.

(In case anybody remembers my earlier "fragile" comment, well...)
