    tests/samba-tool user wdigest: fix a flapping test
    The output of something like
      samba-tool user getpassword $USER --attributes virtualWDigest01
    contains an LDIF section with long strings folded on the 77th column.
    To unfold this LDIF we were using:
       result = re.sub(r"\n\s*", '', out)
    which worked fine EXCEPT when a space in the output happened to land
    immediately after the fold and got eaten by the \s*.
    Instead we remove just a single space after the line break, because
    that is always what fold_string() in lib/ldb/common/ldb_ldif.c
    inserts, and for this simple replacement we don't need the re module.
