lookup_name does nothing magically. It calls LookupAccountName().
If a login server is given, it tries to call it with that login
server first. If that call failes, LookupAccountName() is called
again with login server set to NULL which is equivalent to the
local system.
So, if the system hangs that way, it is related to the OS.

I wonder what there can be changed. On one hand there will
be probably no hanging if LookupAccountName() is called only
with NULL server but on the other hand that will disallow
correct security handling of domain users.
Maybe we should use the not NULL login server parameter
only if ntsec is ON...

That code wasn't part of b20.1
