USER_3 isn't the only struct, that is associated with a
user in TNG, USER_3 is part of a samba-specific struct,
that is associated with the VUID. that samba-specific
struct currently mainly contains unix-security-context
related stuff and the like. But it could also contain the
neccessary info for "level 6".

Luke, please correct me, this isn't the stuff, I know much
