Aren’t the orphaned backlinks an artefact of a previous fix ? I seem to
remember they have always been there, but the 'fix' just exposed them.
It might help if we could see the powershell script, just how were the
users deleted, the other question is: why was a powershell script used,
when it would have been easier to write a bash script around
'samba-tool user delete'
