I just successfully got rid of one :-)

And I still think that simply not trying to store anything that is
already there in this exact form doesn't really cost us much and deals
with the init_wellknownsids quite nicely. On a BDC the mappings should
already be there even upon the first startup. The only thing that then
happens is that the local cache is filled. We don't have to bother the
PDC's LDAP server upon each startup of a BDC.

Local success and remote failure leads to inconsistent databases. How
did you want to cope with that?
