So, in terms of the 'protocol' across the winbindd pipe, the pointer is
used like in NDR:  A boolean indication of 'is there extra data'.  As
such, we don't need to keep the actual pointer there, nor do we depend
on it's size.  

Because that structure is used both for a 'wire' and internal
representation, we just need somewhere else to stuff the extra data
while processing it.

Anyway, add this to bugzilla, so it won't get lost.
