I'm really sorry, but it seems like this is just completely my own fault.
Apparently MS-Windows works around this issue by preventing people from creating accounts with the same name as the
When I installed this machine and ran into that, I assumed it was a bug and found a way to force windows to make my
machine name the same as my account name.

So I've been wasting your time - sorry about time. I'll rename my machine and that should make this problem go away.

Regards, Noel.

The documentation doesn't exactly mention this for LookupAccountName(),, true, but on the other hand, I guess that in general member computers also are "accounts" in the domain, or something, so it makes sense from that point of view...
