oh, good catch! Thanks.

There are some README.Coding issues around "Make use of helper variables". Can
you fix those please?

Does this hunk even compile:

+	if ((at_ptr = strchr(entry->principal_name, '@')) != NULL) {
+		int strlen = at_ptr-entry->principal_name;
+		sam = talloc_zero_size(ctx, strlen+1);
+		strncpy(sam, entry->principal_name, strlen);
+	} else {
+		DEBUG(5,("Could not determine samAccountName from %s\n",
+			 entry->principal_name));
+		goto fail;
+	}

Also, why not use talloc_strndup()?

And would it be possible to reuse ads_idmap_cached_connection() instead of
rolling your own?
