I really can't say much more other than what's already in the ticket
("[...] samba 4 puts the unique 'netbios' identifier in the 'cn'
attribute, not the 'nETBIOSName' attribute [...]"). The reason why I
believe I've run into this bug is that I'm getting an error with a
reference to "nETBIOSName" upon opening the CIFS configuration panel
on FreeNAS.

I would post this on samba-technical, but I have very little
understanding of the internals so I think it would be more of a
nuisance than helping out the project. However, if you believe
otherwise, I'd be happy to do so.
