I canceled my autobuild after seeing a panic and other failures,
in the background replication, which might be related.

See the attached files, look for:

#22 0x00002aaad8292eda in dsdb_replicated_objects_commit
(ldb=0x2aaadb438130, working_schema=0x2aaae242e2e0,
objects=0x2aaae4411990, notify_uSN=0x2aaae522ed10) at
        werr = {w = 3789606832}
        ext_res = 0x0
        cur_schema = 0x2aaae2971da0
        new_schema = 0x0
        ret = 0
        seq_num1 = 26673
        seq_num2 = 4294967296
        used_global_schema = true
        tmp_ctx = 0x2aaae1bdd380
        __FUNCTION__ = "dsdb_replicated_objects_commit"

I also noticed:
../source4/dsdb/schema/schema_syntax.c:1021: Unknown governsID 0x005A000D
../source4/dsdb/schema/schema_syntax.c:1076: Unknown attributeID_id
is also still present :-(

Andreas' autobuild will run through the end, but won't result in master.
We can check if it has the same hidden problems.
