argh, i'll try. ok, there are pointers and fields in struct sam_passwd,
four of which can be default "No Value". unix name: NULL nt name: NULL
uid: -1 rid: 0xffff ffff.
at least ONE of these values must not be "No Value". from this one value,
pwdb_sam_map_names looks up the other values and fills them in.
same for pwdb_smb_map_names, by the way.
