Don't think about the async, this isn't an async bug.  The async test
just makes a lot of requests, or exercises this particular interface.

The issue is that LsaLookupSids2 does not emulate the Microsoft
behaviour fully, because it does not do a full internal LsaOpenPolicy2.
The difference is in exactly the access_mask that you de-reference.
Only LsaOpenPolicy2 (but not  dcesrv_lsa_get_policy_state()) fills in

We need to either call the full LsaOpenPolicy2, or at least it's full
equivalent.  We need to work out the access mask to use in the absence
of a policy handle.  The Samba3 code did a lot of access mask work,
perhaps it can help. 

I hope this helps, and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
