oo. then can you do a cvs update, _then_ do a diff?

urr, the problem is that the \PIPE\NETLOGON conncetion is done
therefore , the standard_subxxx() substitutions will substitute
anonymous-user for %U etc.
i described this in great detail on samba tech, last month. see archives

nope. 1) there isn't any "authentication", not in the SMB-sense of the

2) the NETLOGON API is unicode (because NT is unicode). therefore it's
not OK to convert to ascii, perform substs, then convert to unicode,
