4.1 patch cherry-picked from master
For users running Samba 4.1, a change to the pysmbd python wrapper after 4.0 means that running provision twice fails, whereas it used to just wipe the database and start again.
This causes confusion particularly because it blames the POSIX ACL code.
+1, though it would be nice to cherry-pick the version that catches OSError rather than Exception.

This never got into 4.1 while this was still being maintained.
