[Samba] Make Test on Samba 3.2.0

Oh, thanks for reporting.
Metze has also pointed this one out to me.

As you noted, it will work without complaints when you 
do "make install" before "make test". 

It is a bug and I am going to fix it.

The problem is that these new testparm_s3 tests call the testparm
binary, which uses the compiled in defaults for lock dir and so
on to set up locking and logging and so on. I did not notice
these problems in time since I only ran make test from a build
dir where I had previously done make install.

If you care, you might open a bugzilla entry (assigned to
obnox at samba.org) or/and of course provide a patch. 

The plan would be to extend testparm so that one can completely
bypass the lockdir etc from compiled in defaults.
Or rewrite the testparm_s3 tests in C to not call testparm...

I need to think about that....

Cheers - Michael
