Well I saw how it's represented in memory, that'd be a joy to work with,
it's the in-directory copy that's foxed me. I'll have a quick look at
the SIDs tools, see if they're using the same encoding method, and maybe
give it another go, but time's pressing now so it'll be quick.

It's not a biggie, although it would have been nice to put windows out

soon. I've got another couple of bugs to post, so at the very least it
was good for reporting those.
