[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#832880: Reproduced

Thanks, it looks like http://packages.debian.org/jessie/samba links to
the wrong file list - despite the fact that
http://packages.debian.org/jessie/samba covers the version in
jessie-updates, the filelist links point to the contents in jessie
itself, before updates. I've now removed the unreproducible tag.

This is a regression from the 4.2.10 upload that has already been
fixed in the 4.4 branch - see http://bugs.debian.org/821070. We'll
have to apply that (trivial) fix to the jessie branch.
Unfortunately we were between a rock and a hard place for the security
updates to jessie - upstream didn't provide patches to the version of
Samba we had in jessie, but uploading a new major version to a stable
Debian release series is risky - as we have noticed here.

4.2.14 should fix most of the upstream regressions, while hopefully
needing nothing but simple packaging changes.

I'm going to mark this bug as a dupe of another, which has more
accurate details of the problem.
