I think we need to taillor a script for such platforms as make test 
starts something like 6 or 7 samba DC in order to test different forest 
level and things like 2nd DC ...
This takes a lot of memory so you are basically swapping all the time.

Try the following patch, it should try to only do tests for 1 DC
