Not all Windows code links to kdewin32. I'd rather we did NOT reimplement 
the getuid function in every single implementation.

Besides, this completely defeats the purpose of identifying the user that 
holds the connection open.

One thing, though, is that I've just realised the function is called 
GetConnectionUnixUser, so it is only meaningful in Unix context. So we 
can leave it, but I'd recommend adding a generic function too.
