Thanks for the fix Guenther.  Apparently I was trying to work on too many 
bugs concurrently yo make sense of this one.  

I think you are both correct in that the add.*script test and 
determining which rights to test should be separate conditions.
So the question is what rights make sense to create domain trusts ?
I'm inclined towards Domain Admins membership.  I can fix this up
pretty quickly once we decide what is the corrcet behavior.

One more thing, maybe i've just forgotten but what exactly is the 
different between thw workstation trust and server trusts types ?

cheers, jerry
