Bug Description

Running "net usershare list" reads an uninitialized value into a pointer, which could lead to "random" crashes.

Upstream confirmed the issue and provided a patch, which I tested and confirmed solved the problem.

The patch looks very low risk. I have attached a debdiff for consideration by a sponsor.
