I'm investigating this (but I'm on the road at the moment so won't
be able to do anything until I'm back in the office on Wed). It's
harmless in that the user can always log in (compared to the bug
this code change fixed, in which the user sometimes couldn't log in :-)
but the error messages are bugging me. If I decide it's a Windows
bug I'll just raise the debug log leve, if it's an smbd bug I'll
just fix it :-).
