Hi Ralph and others.

According to vfs_fruit man page, 'fruit:zero_file_id' is set to ‘yes' by default. Now I don’t know if there is an error somewhere on my part or there’s some side effect, but I had this set explicitly to ‘yes' in smb.conf and Spotlight searches didn’t work anymore.

Commenting this out and restarting smbd made search work again. This was on 4.14.10.
