 I realised this isn't an LDAP issue - it's because I'm sourcing
 my stuff from a cifs mount.  So it's coming in as whatever 
 uid/gid the user-level cifs mount sets it as.

 Happily this highlights a problem I would have had when I change
 the config to start using ssh - the uid/gid of every file will
 suddenly change, and it'd force a refresh of about 180GB of data.

 Phew!  ;)
