I was shocked to encounter this problem when testing out a jessie ->
stretch upgrade.  Thankfully I did not do the upgrade in production.  I
took an image of one of the VMs that runs as a Samba AD DC and tried the
upgrade on the VM.  The dist-upgrade step failed because of the bad
samba/winbind interaction.  Has this issue really not been encountered
by more people?
