In this case there are no Domain issues. On this topic, I like your
suggestion to add BUILTIN\Users when the DC does not answer.
Alternatively mkgroup could add all the domain users to the Users group 
(that way it could be customized to each site, if needed). Variations: add
such a switch to mkgroup or create a script to add the info.
Just to be clear I attempted to reproduce on Vista, but there it worked fine.
I don't have access to more advanced systems.

So the only bug I can fix is to add the missing space in get_registry_hive_path :(

I can also look into pruning out unneeded (and expensive on Win 7) calls
to fhandler_console::need_invisible
I have been trying to find a description of why it's needed (flashing windows?).
Are there some well defined tests?
