Yes, messages is where I first noticed it hadn't upgraded. I was running
samba43 prior to this. The second run of pkg uninstaled Samba
43-4.3.11 and installed samba44-4.4.15. It also upgraded gvfs. The
reason I mention samba3.6 is because that's the only place that bug
seems to have occurred, it never showed up here untiltoday.

I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation, I just have no idea what it
