I don't think reusing XPUBs inside different multisig wallets is a good
idea... For starters, loss of privacy in one wallet will immediately affect
privacy of other wallets. I think multisig wallets should be completely
firewalled from each other. That means one unique XPUB per wallet. This is
what we have been doing with the Nunchuk wallet.

Thank you and good to know ! Look forward to solving this correctly as well.
