Windows username in get_group_sidlist

Now that get_group_sidlist () knows pw, it would be easy to
lookup the domain from passwd, instead of using LookupAccountSid.
This avoids over-the-network lookups for domain users.

I would actually read passwd by calling extract_nt_dom_user (),
modifying it to first read the domain from the passwd file, and 
if that fails, use LookupAccountSid [currently it tries 
LookupAccountSid first, getting the sid from passwd]. 

What do you think?

Actually it was Eudora. Don't know what happened. I may have 
accidentally inserted a space.
