Thanks Andrew. I tested under both waf and autoconf builds,
as root and non-root and also tested with a custom smbtorture
build that swapped userids on a single connection to a process
as well as using runas.exe under Windows7 (even though that
opens 2 connections these days) to make sure uid switching was
working correctly before committing this code.

Once I found some buildfarm breakage on Solaris/Nexenta I
worked with Ira to get the autoconf build fixed for that

I'm pretty confident this code should work as expected,
so I'm interested in tracking down any anomalies.
