I had to locally revert this commit (along with 
9c4827e433e675292892bc82743d885b53574c9a, which builds on it) in order 
to get the samba4.blackbox.passwords test to pass.

I apologize for not having more error detail on this one, but I remember 
that the setpassword commands in testprogs/blackbox/test_passwords.sh 
were failing with an error from the kludge_acl module because the user 
attempting the change is not SYSTEM or Administrator.

The failures should be readily apparent when running the
samba4.blackbox.passwords test.
