What happens now? Looking at the code I get the impression
that we default to DOMAIN\foo. So if we get an unqualified
name, talloc_asprintf(ctx, "%s\\%s", lp_workgroup(), name),
try with that and only if that fails then do the naked
lookup_name() which has its defined order. This is a hack,
but that whole thing is.

I did not try this, so it might break horribly. But I've
looked at putting lookup_name into parse_domain_user before
and did _not_ try that yet.
