* Other well-known SIDs

* Logon SIDs

* Accounts from the local machine's user DB (SAM)

* Accounts from the machine's primary domain

* Accounts from a trusted domain of the machine's primary domain

This listing suggests to me that local accounts would be returned
before domain accounts. This is sensible because you wouldn't want to
search the domain before searching the local machine first
(performance).

So the scenario I am talking about is there is testuser in local SAM,
and testuser in computer's domain.

'getend passwd testuser' returns the domain account. Based on the
above, I was expecting the local account to be returned first.

What am I missing?
