  I don't know if this is a bug or just a spurious error message when using
smbclient (on a standalone config), but checking smbclient, I get:

02:47 2pi:~> smbclient -U% -Llocalhost
Unable to initialize messaging context

What is "Unable to initialize messaging context"?

I see a patch back in July, related to "Fix bug 13465",
https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba-technical/2018-July/129186.html but it
is unclear why the message is still being issued?

Any ideas?
