Aha.  Now I see.  Once I update samba-backports with samba-4.17 it will be
upgraded automatically which you don't want to do. But you still want it
to be upgraded from 4.16.5 to 4.16.6.  That makes sense.

It's an interesting observation indeed.  I'll think about it.

Now, there's one more question. Why it is so risky to upgrade
to a new samba "major" release?
