Except I have a working AD-DC even before I updated to the backport 
version. My understanding, which I have yet to see refuted, is that it's 
only recent versions of Windows 11 that need a newer version than 
Debian/Stable provides. Rowland seems to believe that the issues affect 
recent Windows 10 updates but mine is 21H2. Does that qualify?

The problems I'm currently having weren't fixed by the upgrade to the 
backport version.

That would be a violation of Debian policy. Security and bug fixes are 
supposed to be ongoing at least until it drops out from old-stable.
