Kodi is a GUI app. There is no "shell" or "exit to shell" feature. It calls library 
functions and does not call the "smbclient" command-line tool.

Any changes to guisettings.xml requires entering the GUI and toggling the settings. 
I've tried setting Min Protocol to None, SMBv1, SMBv2. I've tried setting Max 
Protocol to None, SMBv1, SMBv2. No combination of settings works. Kodi crashes the 
same way (in libgenrand-samba4.so, opening /dev/urandom) each time.

This looks like a Samba bug so I'll file it.
