thi is not acceptable for the SPOOLSS functions, which pass in a
stupid-wasted buffer as an [in out] parameter.

the buffer size could potentiallly be several megabytes in size.  NT has a
hard-limit of 5mb on dce/rpc data and a hard-limit of unknown size in
SPOOLLSS but they got it wrong.  [if you send a request with 1mb of
spoolss data you will terminate spoolss.exe].

anyway, the upshot is that it's not really ok to dup() [in] and [in out]
