Hi, this is from a rather old issue - extracted from the samba archives...

Today it happened to me on Debian Buster, updating from latest 4.11.18 to 4.12.15 from Lois repositories.
This is an rather "old" installation with multiple Upgrades, still knowing about "eth0". 
4.11 was running fine, but 4.12.15 made a core dump.

Uncommenting this both lines worked for me - thanks to this old thread.
