OK, what I have found is that with a simple smb.conf, there are no
problems, but as my smb.conf file gets more complex, problems like the one
you mention above occur.

This week I will start investigating when the problems occur, and then
maybe we can have a fix.

Also, the patch I supplied is a stop-gap. I have asked JF for more info on
this so I can apply a real fix.
