I do want to apologise.  This is a regression in Samba, since early 4.0,
one of those annoying cases where fixing other issues created this one.

I need to find the patch I did to have it remove the empty sam.ldb that
is created during our probe of ACL support.  In the meantime, the
workaround is to wipe the private directory.
