I'm also seeing segfaults during make test due to create_local_nt_token
inside samba_gpoupdate when it is run. It appears that it tries to open
my local database (to little avail and may be the cause of the
segfault), not the one intended for the test environment. 

In my case, I was running 'make testenv', and watching the output.
