Become_root depth is nonzero

After starting to use usrmgr yesterday I noticed a problem with
nonzero root depth. This occurs in rpc_server/srv_lookup.c and I
believe it is caused by a call to lookup_name in make_dom_gids being
wrapped in become_root. Since all privileged calls from lookup_name
and it's descendants also are wrapped, the error occurs when we get to

The patch I'm proposing removes the seemingly unneeded become_root /
unbecome_root pair around that call. I have not been able to detect
any new problems from this, and it seems to me that the pair was
anyway on the wrong level in the architecture.

Best regards
