This appears to be due to a slow startup of winbindd.  When we force
winbindd to be very slow to start, it fails reliably.  I'm looking into
making sure wbinfo -p returns successfully before any tests start.

My guess is that the 'legacy fallback' calls behave differently to the
winbindd online calls, which we may wish to look into.
