Sorry about that.  This is a known problem, I'm currently working with
jelmer to improve the python bindings before I can finally fix this.

This occurred because I didn't test the 'normal' way we provision, only
the different modes that 'make test' uses.  (It is hard to test this in
our testsuite, without risking clobbering the system smb.conf).
