Thanks for your bug report.

Really segfault? Or errors out and exits?

I can move this tmpfile to samba-common. But this only solves the
problem under systemd.
Also, we must ensure that systemd-tmpfiles is run (after samba-common
install, and of course on boot).
I see two solutions:
- Move this snipset to samba-common (with proper Breaks:) and ensure
systemd-tmpfiles is called on postinst, or
- Move lockdir to /var/lib/samba (optionally in a subdir)
Solution 1 will have non-working smbclient on non-systemd systems.
solution 2 will have lock files not purged on reboot.
Also, as smbclient can be run as non-root, we need a more generic solution...
