And you reliably manage to get Samba stuck in a way where you need to
reboot to be able to get DNS working again? As I said, I'd expect a
restart of the "samba" process to be sufficient (you might need to kill
all the running samba processes if they don't exit cleanly).

Ok, that does seem like asking the external forwarder might be
triggering that. Volker recently made that code much more resilient. You
might want to just give this another try.
