Yes, i do agree, but when shown/explained like this, might helps finding/understanding, this bug/problem better.
Run as root : samba-tool domain backup offline
Run as any user : samba-tool domain backup online --server=DC1 --targetdir=/tmp -Uadministrator
Where root is needed for all file access ( offline ) and adminstrator is needed for acl's withing the AD-DB. ( online )
And yes, i totaly agree, running it as root helps avoiding problems.
