Well, you're probably missing the Debian keyring on your
machine. 0xC0143D2D is definitely in it.

Well, I assembled the information later so it is less needed now.

In such case, you may change snesitive information. Quite often,
not having the complete smb.conf (at the minimum the entire [global]
section as well as the offending share section., is likely to make us
miss an important setting that might be specific to your setup.

Yes, I finally figured that out and have been able to reproduce the
bug. It will be fixed in 3.0.25-6etch2 (currently being built by the
security team).
