So, it happens on Samba and Windows, this probably means it isn't a
Samba problem, so I would go back to the app vendor and point this out.

It might also help if you could tell us what the app is, someone else
might have faced the same problem and fixed it.

I probably should also point out that Samba 4.5.x is EOL as far as
Samba is concerned.
