OK, I just confirmed locally that using a build from current
git-head works perfectly correctly (modulo my *terrible* music
taste of course :-) allowing SONOSv1 (all I have in my home
system) SMB1 to play. This is using an identical smb.conf
file and using an authenticated user to connect.

I'll try a 4.17 build next.
