Well, I'm not completely convinced that we will have very useful input
for you. I don't really see any reason for this to be caused by the
Debian packaging. To check this, why not compile samba from sources,
install it in /usr/local and run the same tests?

I also recommend you bring this problem in the samba users mailing
lists (samba at lists.samba.org seems appropriate).

Advice about smb.conf: instead of sending the entire file, I suggest
you send the output of "testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf" as what will
appear then are the only parameters that do not have the default value
(and that will remove all French comments...:-))
