OK, I think you may have a Samba 'time.py' module still installed. This
was removed from Samba sometime ago, if you do still have it, it will be
in the same directory as 'user.py' & 'group.py' e.g. on a self compiled
Samba it will be in:


If it is there and if you open it in an editor, it looks like this at
the top:

# time

You will need to remove the file and then try the 'expunge' command
