Yikes - I didn't really look at that code before - it's horrid!

That must really cost on winbind-appliance systems.  For the record,
this call is not made any more since my @group expansion patch for
'boring' logins, but some 'force group' variants, 'security=share'
setups and the SAMR 'add/delete user from group' we still need to call
