Fun fact: It worked for me without a reboot .... Corrected my typo in 
user.map, went back to ADUC, reopend the Management Console and "Local 
users and groups" was not locked anymore. Could finally access the 
shares dialog box, but are now a little scared as to how to deal with 
those unwanted accounts. Previously I had locked myself out. See my 
other reply.
