interesting, I didn't know that, must say don't recall this one in CI
but post these changes this test started flapping more frequently on
gitlab CI on the merge branch. But it took 3 attempts I think to get
this patchset through on autobuild (all failing on this test) strangely
it seems it on the samba-ad-dc-1-mitkrb5 job that it fails in (can't
recall seeing it fail on the normal samba-ad-dc either on gitlab or

Given the increase in frequency of this test failing randomly it seemed
the sane thing to mark it as flapping. Of course any attempt I made to
reproduce this test failed miserably and it passed fine anytime I tried
to run it either with/without mitkrb5 specific config, very
frustrating.  I'll give it another poke during the week
