Thanks Rowland. This bug was indeed the problem. I am not sure why it 
decided to rear its ugly head now but it did.

It turns out my account was immune to it because when I switched over 
from the RID to AD backend I had made my uidNumber the same as the 
xidNumber. However my wife's account's uidNumber was my uidNumber +1. 
But that was not the xidNumber in the idmap.ldb. I removed the offending 
idmap.ldb entries, changed uidNumbers to something more reasonable and 
then ran chown to repossess our user directories & files. Everything is 
working like it is supposed to now.
