samba-tool dns commands failing?

I'm running the latest git version of the samba-tool, trying to view/modify
information in my DNS zones, and all the DNS related commands are suddenly

<samba:dev>? samba-tool dns add dummy  A --password=<adminpasswd>
Failed to bind to uuid 50abc2a4-574d-40b3-9d66-ee4fd5fba076 for
50abc2a4-574d-40b3-9d66-ee4fd5fba076 at ncacn_ip_tcp:[1024,sign]
ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (-1073741614,
line 167, in _run
    return*args, **kwargs)
"/usr/local/samba/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/samba/netcmd/", line
848, in run
    dns_conn = dns_connect(server, self.lp, self.creds)
"/usr/local/samba/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/samba/netcmd/", line
36, in dns_connect
    dns_conn = dnsserver.dnsserver(binding_str, lp, creds)

I get pretty much the same response from any command, regardless of the
user that run the command as.  The dns server is running, and replies
appropriately to DNS queries.  DNS is running bind 9.8, as included in
Fedora 16.
