Jeremy and me wrote some short mails about that, I intended
to write a USER_3_to_NT_USER_TOKEN (NT_USER_TOKEN is the
name of the struct in HEAD) for TNG... But as people might
have seen from CVS, I haven't gotten around to it. (For
several reasons, including this hole lot of mail)

NT_USER_TOKEN simply consists of a count and list of SIDs.
By "definition", the first SID is the user-SID and the
second SID is the group-SID.
(I suggest, this "definition" be documented in comments in
smb.h in HEAD.)

It might realy be of interest to check both (HEAD and TNG)
implementations against each other, as Andrew suggests.
