Please also note that this bug is recorded in Debian BTS as #177584.

If someone knows how to link Ubuntu bugs and Debian bugs, please do

I would personnally vote against applying a fix for this if it doesn't
get upstream's approval.

For Debian's samba packages, we always avoid applying changes that
aren't motivated by something specific to the distribution...and I'd
suggest the Ubuntu packagers to apply the same policy (as of now,
Ubuntu packages are as close as possible to Debian ones).
