I verified this by adding this patch to the PKGBUILD, rebuilding and retrying the Time Machine backup.

The issue should have been fixed in samba 4.9 according to the aforementioned thread. I see there's samba 4.9.1 in the arch testing repository, but it has been there for a while now.
Is there any plan to proceed with the release?

Actually, it seems the mentioned bug should be fixed in samba 4.8.6 according to []. Maybe it is better bump to 4.8.6 instead for the time being.
