No, it does not. %L is information retrieved from the netbios session setup,
which is only done if the client connects on port 139. Set 'smb ports = 139',
and your %L will work again.

We *might* remove the %L parameter and have people replace it with %I, the
client's IP address.

Yes, you should. If %L is really needed set 'smb ports = 139'.

No way either, I'm sure people rely on port 445 these days.

Update all the documentation to only use %I.
