I am not convinced this is a Samba problem. It could be that Samba isn't 
providing something that Windows now expects, or Samba is providing 
something that Windows doesn't expect, but I think it is more likely 
that it has something to do with the 130 CVE's that Microsoft shipped 


It wouldn't be the first time Microsoft broke something while fixing 
something else.

By all means open a bug report, Samba may need to change something to 
get things working again, but it will probably require level 10 logs and 
network traces to workout just what is going on.
