    tests: disable loading of the scim module as this can causes hangs of the 
    With scim installed we can run into hangs of the test suite when the 
    scim module tries to connect to the scim on the system. This has happened 
    and again on different installations and made the test suite really fragile.
    We would need to make sure that scim is configured on the host before we 
    run this test. It might be a candidate for skipped tests where we check if 
    env has all we need to run the test and if not skip it. We don not have all 
    needed pieces in place for this so the best we can do to make the test runs 
    fragile is disabling scim module loading for now.
