Can you please send me a capture trace of this and a debug
level 10 from the smbd ? There is code in smbd/errors.c to
prevent this from happening (see error_packet()). If we're
doing this I'd like to know about it.

The flags in the client packets don't matter, it's the
bit in the sessionsetup capabilities bit that smbd looks
at to determine this.
