As has been mentioned on samba-technical@ recently, this can break the
IPC$ share quite badly.   In any case, root is already uid 0, and you
should not have an 'administrator' too.  Just use root, until we get
ACLs on our LDAP stuff.

This does not impact on who appears to be an admin on the client anyway,
they need to be in the 'domain administrators' mapped group for that.
