Win2K problem looking up SIDs to names.

Can we take it from that remark that code *is currently* being ported from
the TNG to the HEAD branch?

Exactly *what* is moving over? (The split daemon architechture I'm
particularly interested in, as it leads directly to some very neat stuff).

Thanks for that. I'll look in the tng codebase and merge in that
fix asap for 2.0.7 and HEAD.

Luke, HEAD is slowly *becoming* TNG, it just takes a while
as the code is moving across as it gets reviewed. This takes
a lot of effort, don't get disheatened.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
