Is btrfs becoming more common ?
In my impression: Yes. Also, this problem seems to affect also zfs and thus all (?) file systems that support checksums and scrubbing in linux; consequently all filesystems that are the choice of users who need this for ensuring data consistency.
Not from my experience, but, hey, what do I know ;-)
You posted this:
I am using Openmediavault (debian based NAS distribution), which is not actively supporting btrfs
It is this that I was referring to.
Ah, yes.
OMV intended to move to btrfs as the only choice with the next version. In order to pave the way, I intended to be an early adopter. The problem I report here, that there is good reason to.
For you perhaps, but if OMV will not help, well......

I suggest you sit down with a copy of 'man smb.conf' and remove all the default
My intent is not to solve *my* problem, but to make developers aware of this issue and help getting this issue fixed.

I feel a bit helpless though, as I perceive a lack of interest...
I mean... This Bug is now celebrating its 5th aniversary.

That sort of says a lot, if it was that big a problem and multiple users were complaining, then it probably would get fixed, but there are only so many developers and they have only so much time available to fix things and add new features, so the most important things get fixed first. We do, however, accept patches to fix things, so perhaps you can get together with OMV and fix it from your end ;-)
