In case anyone finds my post and wonders what happened, I tested
previous versions of samba (4.3.3 and 4.2.11) and was not able to
reproduce the issue.  While I was deciding what to do, 4.3.9 was
released and apparently fixed the bug I was running into.  We're now
moving forward with deploying 4.3.9.
