I believe this is a race -- a DC has disappeared or appeared between the
various checks. In the real world it is reasonable for samba-tool to fail
here (it won't happen / there's not much else to do), but autobuild of
course is a different matter.

I am not really able to look into it this week, so please mark it as flapping
in the meantime.

Now that I think about it, I can imagine many reasons why the python tests
might not be suited to running in parallel with themselves in a semi-
indeterminate order, so fixing this particular test might not be the
end of the matter.
