So, just to loop back.  Looking again at the flaky mail I just got, the
issue was that when I called 'samba-tool gpo create' I forgot to
indicate --tmpdir, and so if another user was running or had run an
autobuild, it would fail (unable to use the directory).

I've fixed this, so it shouldn't come back.
