It probably doesn't work, particularly for 1.4, as the DSDB module
stack had to again be changed again when the locking got stricter.  

It also simply isn't tested. 

I don't suggest mixing Samba with LDB versions different to what it was
released with, and we should probably remove the pretence that this was
ever a good idea (ie like CTDB, just release with Samba).
