because if we want to b a pdc...  'ang about...  methinks you might be
right.  ok, what kind of usernames have been observed?

sure, wthis could be deleted but only if usernames of, say
"TRUST_ACCOUNT$" are never observed except if the response to these is
expected to be the same.

i _think_ the SAMLOGON response expects to contain the sid (ok, there's
_one_ of these UDPs that expects a SID), and it is likely tbe used to
resole inter-domain tryst accounts.

i checked the cvsweb diffs (all of them) and it's been there all the time.
