[openstack-ansible] strange execution delays

Hi Joe,

Those timeouts re almost 99% the reason behind this issue.  I'd
suggest restarting systemd-logind and seeing how that fares:

systemctl restart systemd-logind

If the issue persists or happens again, I'm not sure, but those
timeouts are 100% a cause of issue here.

I want to point the problem there, but we've run into this issue in two different locations, one of which has an upstream DNS resolver that I'm confident does not throttle requests. But, hey, it's DNS - maybe it's still the cause.
