Just an FYI, I will consider the information you sent to Obaid in my investigation.
He is currently out of office but forwarded me the following message. Your comment appears to intersect with the other case you open regarding ClientWrap and its use case.

Please do it the other way around. That would match our steps. It
certainly appears to be an issue in new profiles, after the patches.
It may be enough to create a new user after patching, but you suggest
below that this doesn't help.
Have you had any luck doing this where you join the newly built,
patched, machine to Samba, where it has never seen the same domain
before, after doing the patches?
From our side, we have just finished writing the ServerWrap server-side,
and this 'fixes' this issue, but I strong suspect it just works around
it - that the client prefers to do CleintWrap, and this is a fallback.
As such, I still need to know what changed, and what we are doing wrong
in our ClientWrap server, both in master and after the patch in bug
11097 is applied.

In particular, we now see more calls to BACKUPKEY_BACKUP_GUID, that is ServerWrap, vs the ClientWrap that we did have implemented. In the past, our failure to implement this had no user-visible impact, and happened only once per login, now it prevents operation of credentials manager and is repeated often. It looks like it has gone from a soft to a hard error in the client code, essentially.
