(please answer to pkg-samba-maint only unless this is *not* related to
the samba packages. No need to CC me to replies)

Quoting Michel BRIAND (michelbriand at free.fr):

You probably mean "samba".

samba is now using ucf to handle smb.conf changes. That might be
related. We may need more information than those you provided, though:

- version of the samba package before and after the update
- other smb.conf* files in /etc/samba

Please also note that an accidental upload of samba 3.2.0~pre2
happened to unstable and will be reverted pretty soon (blame /me for
the mistake). This upload  theoretically didn't change smb.conf,
