1/ if "guest" has been disabled from "passdb backend", smbd should *not*
crash with a segfault when guest is still written inside, but instead
ignore it or show an explanatory error message; testparm should also
report it (it still doesn't).
2/ The changelog provided in the Debian package doesn't give any rationale,
only the fact it was removed.
3/ by reading the changelog I see that some upgrade *should* have
*silently* removed the incriminated "guest" value. (a) it didn't, and
(b) it shouldn't be done silently but instead clearly advertised since
it's important functionality removal.
4/ "passdb backend = tdbsam guest" was working fine for me. Is the new
version supposed to behave the same, i.e. provide the same access right
policy, with "guest" removed ?
Hope this helps,
