The autobuild test system (on sn-devel-144) has detected an intermittent failing test in 
the current master tree.

The autobuild log of the failure is available here:

The failure seems to be in the "samba-nt4" suite, whose build logs are available here:
The top commit at the time of the failure was:

    selftest: Add basic sanity-check tests for nopython target
    Previously we were only checking samba compiled OK with
    --disable-python, not that it actually ran.
    The main problem is all the make test framework is based around
    subunit/smbtorture, neither of which we seem to build with
    disable-python. However, for just a simple sanity-check, we can just
    bypass all the subunit-filter work and just call the Perl code directly.
    This works OK as long as it's just simple shell script tests that we're
    running, as we can check the script's exit code directly.
    The main thing that we really want to test is that we can start up the
    smbd testenv and connect to it (i.e. a simple smbclient test).
    This patch adds a new 'make test-nopython' target. This disables the
    subunit filtering, and runs a small test-list that was generated manually.
    Note that currently this has the limitation that it doesn't support known
    failures or flapping tests. However, just checking that smd starts up OK
    is probably OK for now.
