fixes the ldb_dn stuff, but I fear that was not the reason for 100MB ram.

make test TESTS=samba4.RPC-BENCH-RPC

let smbd to use up to 42MB after the first test finished
and under gdb I generated:

talloc report on 'struct event_context' (total  90525 bytes in 4302 blocks)

talloc report on 'autofree_context' (total 3986998 bytes in 559814 blocks)

talloc report on 'null_context' (total    174 bytes in   9 blocks)

But that also doesn't explain it...

Also make valgrindtest TESTS=samba4.RPC-BENCH-RPC doesn't report
