It doesn't seem that this bug is in any way related to FreeBSD. Samba is
a thirth party software. You need to report this bug to the samba
development team instead. i think.

Secondly, if this bug was related to FreeBSD then you would still be in
the wrong place. Bugs can be either submitted by the sendbug tool on you
FreeBSD box or via the website
