Hi all,

Patch to fix attached. Interestingly it looks to me like 0f5b1bd9e
"selftest: fix creation of builtin users in wait_for_start" is
potentially unnecessary: double-creating the user doesn't seem to cause
any issues as far as I can tell; that patch just changes ad_member under
ad_dc from failing 100% of the time to failing 10% of the time (when the
user is not already created -- some sort of race?).
