So Metze added a patch to this bug that makes Samba
behave like Windows. Does that fix the issue ?

We should probably also add a regression test
that uses rpcclient to request the SID lists
that causes Windows to crash when Samba replies,
and make sure that we keep returning what Windows
returns in this specific case instead.
