OK - it looks like the advertised username->rid mapping for the
queryusergroups function isn't working.  If you know the rid of
the user you can do:

rpcclient $> queryusergroups 500
	group rid:[0x201] attr:[0x7]
	group rid:[0x200] attr:[0x7]
	group rid:[0x3f8] attr:[0x7]

Eek - it looks like the querygroup command doesn't work quite as
it should either.  )-:
