1.3.64 clients will take down your file servers having nothing to do
with multiple uuids.  Clients older than 1.3.80 have a bug the generates
a new rx connection per authenticated request.  Client's older than
1.3.80 do not support UUIDs.

1.4.1 or later will prevent the cloning of UUIDs.

1.5.12 or later use a CIFS server implementation that passes Microsoft's
protocol tests.

1.5.21 is current.

If your users have stability problems, then should file bug reports.
Otherwise, we won't know there are issues that need to be fixed.
