Package: smbclient
Version: 2:4.9.5+dfsg-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

         in a freshly installed testing/buster release, I installed samba + smbclient and reproduced the same configuration
 (smb.conf, smbpasswd for root and for user) that is perfectly working on a Stretch release installed in a separated partition .
Testparm gives a positive result, and  # pdbedit -w -L correctly provides
root:0:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX:564A9466B5B97FEBE398359543B5B07D:[U          ]:LCT-5CA4C2F8:
giuliano:1000:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX:8C869E0D14E71B60877E785FE5F8A299:[U          ]:LCT-5CA4C312:

Issuing the command smbtree as root I can see the available local and remote resources, however issuing the same command
 as user I get
"Unable to initialize messaging context" on the first line,
followed either by nothing, or by an incorrect or partial list of the shares.
Restarting samba (# /usr/sbin/service smbd restart) then smbtree shows all the shares, always with the same message on first
line, but I cannot browse them:
Dolphin does not show anything under Samba Shares.

I have quite a limited experience and do not know which other details might be of interest.

Thanks for your attention and work
Giuliano Cabrele
