Updates to samba in stable are often to be considered with great care.

Still, atfer re-reading the bug, it might be relevant to include the
patch in 3.6.6 for wheezy: in the past, I happened to fix such
important bugs in a stable release update, after talking with the
Stable Release Team.

Still, I leave that decision up to Ivo, who is now the main maintainer
of samba, as we're talking about his time....and properly collecting
the needed patches (it seems there are two patches for this issue),
then isolating them from other fixes, then forwarding them to the
Stable Release Team then arguing with them is......a significant
amount of work and only him can tell he's OK to do it....
