Can you give me what details you have of the failure?

I ran it here often, and got it past autobuild, so I'll need some

There is only one thing I came across in my testing: a failure to
contact a newly running server in the test environment.  This change
requires that it contact the server by name, not IP, and so if nmbd
isn't fast enough, or smbd hasn't really started in time, then we could
have problems.  

Perhaps that's the issue?  Samba4 puts some 'nmblookup' calls in the
server starting code to ensure things are up and going in it's selftest.
