Yes, sorry for being unclear.

The only change between 22.x and the current CVS trunk should be that
the value of dflt_passwd.pw_uid is computed differently from the
user's SID we extract from Emacs's process token.  But what you found
from your debugging seems to indicate that somehow one of the syscalls
we use for extracting the SID stopped working, and I don't expect any
differences there, because that code wasn't supposed to change between
22.x and the trunk.
