Another thing: I can never remember the exact spelling of the privilege names.
Once I spent way too long to figure out why net rpc rights list would just not
list anything. The RPC call to list privileges can't tell you that the admin
does not have 'enable privileges = yes' set. I know this is just dumb admins,
but I had forgotten it once, and even in the debug output of smbd _nothing_ was
mentioned that this might be the problem.

Looking at source code is not a good debugging strategy, although it helped me
in this particlar case....
