We are having some teething trouble with the new Rackspace based build
hosts (they have different timing properties to the Catalyst Cloud
hosts, local worktations and importantly sn-devel).  To make things
even more challenging the PSO support brought in more runs of timing-
dependent tests. 

sn-devel will likely be fine, and the timing will be investigated to
see either if it can be make more tolerant or if the VM can be tweaked.

I'm running a CI on the Catalyst Cloud (the catalyst-samba repo is
hooked up to different runner VMs) via this link to see if we can break
the deadlock:


In the meantime I've also reviewed it and pushed it to autobuild.
