Login uid is the original id that a user logs in with. However, that is not as concise 
as it could be. So, in the logs its represented as auid to save bytes because it will 
show up in all events. They are synonymous.

There is no setauid function. There is a audit_setloginuid() function that you could 
write a short program to see what it does. It creates a LOGIN event - which is really 
to indicate that a loginuid was assigned.
