Just upgraded a file server to Samba 4.17.9-Debian
and Bullseye (Debian 11).

Noticed that am now getting a number of errors in the smbd log:

'chdir_current_service: vfs_Chfir (a-directory) failed.
Permission Denied uid=................

The uid on all the entries seems to correspond to a
computer/machine account if I look it up with
'wbinfo --uid-info'.


Thank you
