steve, the problem is that as soon as you "dubblclik" on one of those
FOO\vorlon names, you will get either the user or the group, and you won't
know which, and you can't distnguish which, regardless of which one you
dubwclik on.

one of them shouldn't be there.  anyway, see other messsage.

all best,
