 Do you get the "signout" or "dismiss" choices? If so, I have done no in
depth testing but, I did "dismiss" and saved a text doc to the desktop.
Signed out and logged back in and the text doc was still there on the
desktop. So do not know enough to determine if it's a bug or security
I don't see either of those.  I just try to open a share in the
Konqueror browser.  I can see the Users folder, but nothing below it.

I apologize, I miss understood. You are accessing W7 or W10 shares from
a linux client. 

In my case accessing Samba4 member shares from W10 client I am getting
an error pop-up that is asking to "signout" or "dismiss" choices. Well,
selecting "signout" does exactly that, sign you out of your W10 client.
The "dismiss" choice dismisses the complaint dialog and you are allowed
into your client (W10) workstation but, the dismissal is warning the
user that "your" changes may not be saved. 

Like I said I will test more later.
