it was doing a server-side copy when the connection was disconnected by
the client, so smbd ran its teardown stuff.

As part of teardown a bunch of state destructors are executed, ending up
in a cleanup function for the server-side copy state:

That function called stuff which wanted to perform impersonation and
there we crashed in the impersonation code.

As there have been a myriad of changes to the impersonation code since
the version you're using, please try to reproduce the issue with a
current Samba from git master. If the problem persists, please ensure
you configure with --enable-developer which should enabled debug symbols
and should set panic action to sleep.

When you reproduce the crash, the crashing process will sleep() so you
can attach with gdb and get a full backtrace with symbols:

# gdb -p PID
# bt full
