May I quickly remind everybody *never* to use the administrator password
for 'set-auth-user'!

This is for an *unprivileged* user, who's password gets stored plaintext
on a disk, to get around some restrict anonymous issues in certain
situations, mostly involving NT4.  Most of these have been resolved by
the use of Kerberos in winbindd.
