You misinterpreted what I described. Please re-read my preliminary
documentation. The prefixing is used for *builtin* and *well-known*
accounts, *not* for local accounts. Local accounts from the local SAM,
users and groups, are either
- not prefixed at all, if the machine is a standalone machine, or
- prefixed with the machine name if the machine is member of a domain.
The non-prefixed, name-only account names are exclusively used for the
*primary* domain of the machine you're working on, *iff* db_prefix is
set to "auto". This is either the domain the machine has been added to,
or the machine name itself if it's a standalone machine.
I hope that clears things up.
