[Samba] Moving to another idmap backend

Hi all,

I've got winbind up and running on two servers, but the UID/GIDs don't
match up. After educating myself a little, I think I would like to use
the idmap_rid backend. I have set up the smb.conf's accordingly, but
after restarting samba/winbind services, my UIDs and GIDs are still the
old ones. I realize this will break stuff on the filesystem, but am
prepared to fix it by hand.
