I believe you, but I'm at home right now
without a good setup to reproduce.

I'm pretty sure I understand the problem
fully now, it was a misunderstanding in
my earlier patch of what SIDs in sid[0]
might be passed in to create a token.

My original patch ignored non-mappable
SIDs like LOCAL\System, but guest is a
rather special case, as it can be mapped
to a real user, but sid[0] in its token
is set to be the Guest SID.

Here is a fix that I think is correct,
and is a little better than the original
change as it separates out the new code
into a separate function.

It should apply cleanly on top of current
master (once you've removed the earlier
test patch I sent you).

Let me know if it fixes the issue for
you, and I'll be able to do some testing
myself on Monday.
