I've got no rabbit to pull out of the hat for that one. I would post this
exact message to the SAMBA list samba at lists.samba.org

Things move pretty fast in samba development, and the older standalone
fileserver setups don't get much development work compared to ActiveDirectory,

The samba list is very responsive and they will be able to diagnose the issue.
I'll look for your post there.
