[Samba] Strange ID-Mapping behavior

In my case flushing the cache did not help. I had around an dozend of
user accounts with uidNumbers assigned and left over (dynamic winbind)
mappings in idmap.ldb. At first after an flush samba used the uidNumber
but after an logoff/logon of the userd getent passwd [user] showed the
mapping from idmap.ldb. After i deleted the mapping in idmap.ldb
everythiing went back to normal. Under 4.1 the leftover entries in
idmap.ldb where never used.
smbcontrol idmap delete <ID>
can be used to delete the offending entries in idmap.ldb
