I just upgraded Samba 4.8.2 to 4.8.3 on Arch Linux and user's home shares
doesn't work anymore.
Downgrading back to 4.8.2 they work again.

On samba server


   comment = Lietotāju Mapes
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   valid users = @Lietotāji
   invalid users = Guest, @Guests


$ id
uid=1004(Dace) gid=1004(Dace) groups=1004(Dace),100(Lietotāji)

$ grep Dace /etc/passwd

$ net rpc share
Enter WGRP\Dace's password:

On windows host

> net use Z: \\\Dace /USER:Dace
Ievadiet 'Dace' paroli, lai izveidotu savienojumu ar '':
System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

In /var/log/samba/client.log there appears

[2018/07/04 18:34:19.838134,  0]
  canonicalize_connect_path failed for service dace, path /home/SMBSRV/dace

I noticed a difference that with working 4.8.2 version

$ net rpc share
Enter WGRP\Dace's password:

(notice share name with uppercase rather than lowercase)

Don't really know what would be needed to investigate this further so let
me know what additional details should I provide.

I also noticed that if I install samba 4.8.3 right after 4.8.2 without
reboot (but just restart smbd) then user's shares does work but after
reboot they don't anymore.
