The preferred way to solve this problem is to promote loginuid to be part of 
the task structure. We also have another problem where if the audit system is 
temporarily disabled, loginuid will not be set in any new programs. What we'd 
like to have happen is loginuid be available and usable all the time so that 
we always know the auid when the audit system starts back up.
