Was at the beginning of the tread. Removed become_root around calls to
the password and group databases that were performed on behalf of the
user an later also contained some improvements to some RPC responses
(all for head).

The two problems that I'm aware of, though currently cannot do
anything about due to lack of information, are:
* A guest something account shows up on NT
* NETLOGON stopped working for NT (this might have been due to an old
patch, don't know where it ended up)

Have tried, no luck, and thus compiler errors (undefined type) :-(
