THanks for reporting, Santiago.

When it comes at samba, the value added by maintainers acting as
proxies between bug submitters and upstream is sometimes near to
zero. Even more, we often don't have easy ways to reproduce the users'
testing environment, particularly in the case of such panics.

Even more, in many cases, upstream ends up requesting more information
or test cases and we end up acting as proxies the other way, too.

So, in some situations, requesting bug submitters to report the bugs
themselves is done after careful thinking and balancing the advantages
vs the caveats of that choice, believe us.
