I am sure this must have already been reported, but I simply cannot find it!

Samba has released 4.5.5 to fix a known bug in 4.5.4. In vfs_fruit
module, whatever that is. I cannot find any way to avoid using this


It would probably be appropriate to abandon 4.5.4, and move to testing
release 4.5.5 as I am sure I am not the only person to be affected
(samba will not start, just core dumps).

I cannot move back because of dependencies. I am reluctant to have to
re-compile from source as there are many packages I do not want
cluttering the machine. Besides, it will have to be done anyway.

armhf, stretch

Kind regards
