[Samba] smbclient mask command seems not to work the same way with recurse ON for mget and mput

Dear all.

Confirmed: compilation of 4.12.6 produces same result, mput + recurse
ignores mask for files.

Will you please tell me if you need further details, or which steps I
should follow? Should I file a bug?

Many thanks. Best regards.
