Is this in any way reproducable at will? You can for example
force a reconnect by killing the smbd that is responsible
for a particular client. You can find out the pid of that
smbd by running "smbstatus". Then any subsequent access to
that server from the client will trigger a reconnect.

If that is reproducable, could you please install the
debuginfo package that comes with your binary package.

I am very sure I am able to fix that bug If I can get a
valgrind log of that panic. Look at
https://bugzilla.samba.org/ bug 4434 for information how to
get the valgrind log.
