Glad you checked that... my next response would be "I have a gdb
backtrace here that disagrees with you...." ;) 

This patch looks good. net ads workgroup did indeed give the right
output, and allowed the rest of the steps in our sequence to complete
with no segfauls. 

This is part of the Smoothwall domain join mechanism, so there was
somewhat of an urgency on this one :) 

Thank you very much for your assistance; let me know if you need any
further patches testing on this bug.
