S-1-22-x is just a workaround for accounts not in smbpasswd
or pdb_something. Right now we don't have a capability to
list all unix accounts. While it should be possible
RPC-wise, i.e. do a samr_opendomain on s-1-22-1, it is not
implemented yet, and I don't know if this would be available
via the Win32 NetUser API. I doubt that that API expects
more than one SAM on a server.
