If you have the time to track this down, it might be worth doing a git
bisect.  It will require compiling samba about 7 times and testing
each one.

Basically you clone the samba repository (as per the Samba 4 HOWTO on
the wiki) and then:

1.) $ git bisect start samba-4.0.5 samba-4.0.4
2.) Compile samba as normal and test the result.
3.) If it fails, run "git bisect bad".  If it works properly, run "git
bisect good".
4.) If git tells you it's found the bad commit, report that here.
Otherwise it will tell you roughly how many steps are left and what
commit you are on now, in which case, go back to step 2.

When git bisect tells you the bad commit, you can report that here and
it might help the Samba developers to find the problem more easily.

To get your git tree back to where it was before starting the bisect,
do "git bisect reset".
