Add smbstatus test (lock file with smbclient)

Hi Jeremy,

I've created a patch for 'smbstatus -L --resolve-uids' to show usernames 
instead of UIDs as I have a customer request for it.

However Andrew rejected the patch to go in without a test. I've tried to 
implement a test for smbstatus but it doesn't work. My problem is that I'm not 
able to create a lock on a file to show up with smbstatus later.

I can:

open <file>

but I can't pass the returned fnum to

lock <fnum> r 0x0 0x1

to create a lock. See attached patch ...

Any suggestions how to move forward?
