An interesting bit if history here.  If this is the bit of code I
remember, this originally, called GetPwnam(), ie the 'try all cases'
code.  I didn't like that, and I changed it to use the username as found
in smbpasswd, on the theory that this would look up the correct case.

Looking at the bug, I see it didn't deal with getting the correct case
in the first place...
