I agree, that's a much better place.  However, it still leaves the other
problem - make test does not pass any more with this restriction.  The
restriction might be technically correct, but in causing 'make test'
fail, it creates a bigger problem. 

We need to disable this (and mark the part of ldap.py as knownfail)
until the parts of the SAMR server that use this behaviour are updated
to cope with it no longer being permitted.

The same happened with the merge of some of my other 'correct' fixes
from the time with Microsoft.  They were correct, but broke the
provision of the member server until last night.  

We need to merge the fixes to allow all of Samba to use pass 'make test'
with the stricter LDB before the stricter LDB is itself merged.
