Looks like reply_printwrite() is missing setting the reply buffer.

Can you try adding the following patch ?

$ git diff
diff --git a/source3/smbd/reply.c b/source3/smbd/reply.c
index dcda32e8cc1..f7b0fe72f13 100644
--- a/source3/smbd/reply.c
+++ b/source3/smbd/reply.c

         DEBUG(3, ("printwrite %s num=%d\n", fsp_fnum_dbg(fsp), numtowrite));

+       reply_outbuf(req, 0, 0);

I'm guessing this will fix it. If so it should be an easy
patch to get upstream.
