Thanks.  This gives you Samba 4.12.2.  However our development branch,
master is newer.  Could you try that?

git clone https://gitlab.com/samba-team/samba/

That can be downloaded from
but if you use git, then you can really help us with the bisect.

But the rest of your steps look good.

The next step, assuming master still fails, is to do a bisect. 

You may need to run 'git clean -x -f -d' between steps.

This will be slow, particularly as you can't automate it (need test
with the client), but it is a very good way to find what the issue is.
