this seems to be a bug in fsmo.py. specifically the line 53 (reading 
"samdb.modify(m)") should not be present (it is not present in other if-
blocks, but it is present again right after them).

as far as I can see the effect of this line is that
A) the modify() is possibly called twice (not sure it matters, though)
B) a different catch-block is used, resulting in this behaviour (failure in 
transfer means death, not fallback to seize)
