gdb output

If you set Samba 4.3.5 as an NT4-style PDC with ldapsam:editposix (though the later may be a red herring, another user is getting the same problem and he is using ipasam) and then try to create a user with 'smbpasswd -a username', the command ends in a segfault.

You get asked for the users password (twice), the user is created in ldap, but the commands exits without adding the password to the user.

I have attached the smb.conf in use, a level 10 log, a copy of the users object in ldap and what happens when you run smbpasswd with gdb.

I'm getting the same segfault, using ipasam... But my user doesn't gets created in the LDAP/FreeIPA...

Looks a bit like this bug: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11530
(which has a fix in master)

OK, I will download master from git and compile it.

OK, getting closer ;-)
smbpasswd from samba-master creates the user and adds the password, but it still segfaults, see attached files: new_user, new_gdb_result and new_log.wb-EXAMPLE
