Yeah, seems like the right way. pgwin32_is_admin() also checks for

I think this is ready to be committed, except that I don't have an easy
way to reproduce the original problem to test this. I suppose I could
write a test program to call CreateRestrictedToken() and
CreateProcessAsUser(), but would rather avoid the work. Breen, if I push
a fix for this, can you build from sources and verify that it fixes your
original problem? Or alternatively, can you provide a test program that
I can use to verify it?
