Based on your very helpful analysis, I think this may be the issue:

Somewhere in the DCE/RPC server we are missing a
become_root()/unbecome_root() pair around the calls to gensec.  We
should fix this, so please file a bug.

Why this happens only sometimes, and not every time, is a concern. 

However, to further diagnose: after this happens, do you notice if the
mentioned file actually exists, and if so, does it have a timestamp
matching these errors, or something different?
