[Samba] Failures after update Samba 4.6.2

Dear Andrew
For testing purposes, I returned the VM snapshot to version 4.4.5. I circled the command below:

# samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs --fix --yes

But no error is found.
It seems to me that the crash occurs in version 4.6.2 of Samba.

Should I be concerned with the bug that appears in version 4.6.2? Or can I ignore it and keep my DC's in this version?

Thank you for your support!

It won't do anything - the code in that case hid the 'problem' from
dbcheck.  It seems likely that we will again 'hide' the problem from
administrators in the future but for now just ignore it.
