Are you running  winbindd on this server? If yes, does it work properly?
In my case it failed to communicate group IDs to the system, so I had to
rollback to v. 3.4.9.

samba via portupgrade?
I have upgraded it many times before, and in most cases it was just make
deinstall & make reinstall.  

With best regards,
