Because of the long history of Samba - without suitable documentation
for the most part, sometimes myths and legends build up.  That said, I'm
unable to produce this value on the wire for LSA lookup names.  

What we are asking is for is some research and clarification (if
possible).  We can't ask you how we got this in the first place, but we
were hoping you might be able to do some digging, to check the IDL and
see if this value ever occours in this enum in windows (ie, is this a
cut-down enum), or if there is another similar (but not identical) enum
that we might have got confused with.
