I've found and fixed the segfault issue, so now I want testing of the
join.py modifications. 


If those who are having pain getting DNS replication up and going can
try with these 2 patches, I hope this may solve some of the issues.

You still need to run samba_upgradedns after the join, but I'll include
that when I get a chance.  This should at least mean that the partitions
are correctly replicated, which has been the biggest pain point.

We do really want this to work for folks, and I'm sorry it has taken so
long to investigate.
