I'm trying to delete a machine account using pdbedit -x -m and it fails.  Why might that happen?

The machine account exists..

# pdbedit -Lv 'ts$'

Unix username:        TS$

When I try to delete it...

# pdbedit -x -m ts
Unable to delete machine ts$

I can create a different machine account, and delete that..

# pdbedit -a -m ts1

Samba version is 4.6.5.

I submitted to samba-users in case it was my error, but nobody has responded, and since I don't really see any reason for this behavior, I'm reporting it as a bug. 

Please let me know the debug output you need to solve this issue, and I will provide it.
