in your ldap code, you make the distinction between a "machine" account
and a "user" account.  can you remove this distinction?  machine acounts
_are_ user accounts, and "machine" accounts is a misleading name: they are
actually a subset of trust accounts.  therefore, can we refer to them as
"trust" accounts from now? 

the uint16 acct_ctrl member, when the ACB_WKSTRUST bit is set, correctly
and uniquely identifies the account as a workstation trust account. 

there just happens to be an additional (redundant but "visual-in-text") 
method to identify a trust account: it ends with $.
