containers test: Wait a few more seconds for the socket to be deleted

Previously, we were waiting a few seconds for the dbus-daemon to stop
listening, then trying to connect again and asserting that it failed,
then immediately asserting that the socket had actually been deleted.
However, there is a race here: the dbus-daemon stops listening on the
socket, and then deletes it. If the test client wins the race by
probing to see whether the socket is present after the dbus-daemon
has stopped listening but before the dbus-daemon has deleted it, then
the test will fail.

This intermittently happens on Gitlab-CI, most recently in
