Hmm - it's about identification and access right verification.
Currently I rather tend to replace all this by "native unix"
verification. I actually don't think it's a good idea for my app to
bypass the Unix system. 

In this context, one idea would be to simply route requests like these
to Unix services like PAM. There may even be a samba Authorization
service for PAM installed. That way it might actually be possible to map
authorization issues like this correctly from wine to e.g. a PDC, but
through the native Unix interface, and without creating a Samba+Wine
"monster" app. This is far future of course.

What do you think?

I'll try to make a list.

Thanks, Martin
