[Samba] Samba3 sambaSID calculation from 32-bit uidNumber?

Does anyone know how the sambaSID suffix is calculated when the uidNumber is 
a 32-bit integer?

The formula was $uidNumber * 2 + 1000

When checking our current users, my uid 5xx checks out correct, but the ones 
that are larger than 65536 don't seem to follow that calculation.
