This is entirely and totally unrelated.

The regression fixed in the 4.3.8 package is in a patch already
included in Debian's 4.3.7, as they were substantially prepared before
the new tarballs were provided.  Given deadlines and workload before a
fixed embargo release time, the of the *eight* packages released
(including backports of tdb, talloc, ldb and tevent), the three Samba
package for which a late re-release was made were deliberately not re
-made with the new version number.

I hope this clarifies things.
