[Samba] Procedure number out of range

After some more digging I found that if an account have swedish special characters (a's and o with dots above) in the full name field then the error message appears.

I can use pdbedit to clean the full name field from our dotted characters and the user can log in. Is this a bug in Samba 3.5.5?
