The attached two patches pass autobuild on the Catalyst Cloud other than
the usual knownfail on the notify tests.  To do that, I had to match the
writetimeupdatedelay and sharedelay parameters in Samba4.pm to match
Samba3.pm.  I'm not sure what about the different winbind
implementations changes the timing in the ntvfs file server, but this
seems a reasonable change, if only for consistency. 

Now I have that settled, could someone please review/push?
