Anonymous SID translation and Samba 4

we saw that Windows 2000 don't use an authenticated connection for the
SID translation. For Samba 3 the parameter 'restrict anonymous' works
for this case.

I tried to fix this issue with the attached patch. In my test it worked
but I'm unsure about the consequence. Is it the right way?
