Agreed, currently it does not. The frustrating thing is, it used to
work with Samba, and it's frustrating that it does not work any longer

I'm not a great coder in Samba internals, but I am keen to help as
much as I can to at least figure out what would need to be fixed in
order to get this working once more. I do appreciate that without
somebody more experienced than me looking at it, the answer might be
that it simply won't get fixed in the foreseeable future, though.

Thanks! :)
