Description of problem:
In Samba 3.6 the id mapping configuration has been changed and simplified. See the release notes:
and the smb.conf and idmap manpages.
workgroup = LEVEL1
realm = LEVEL1.DISCWORLD.SITE
security = ads
# v3.6 common id range
passdb backend = tdbsam
idmap config * : range = 1000000-1999999
# Winbind domain idmap
idmap config LEVEL1 : backend = rid
idmap config LEVEL1 : range = 100000000-199999999

The same applies to RHEL 6.4, RHEL 7.0 and Fedora. Should I open a bug for each or will you just clone this bug?

Is the new samba completely backwards incompatible with the old settings?

No, the old idmap settings will not work anymore. You NEED to change them!
