I used your complete trace (dfs2.pcap) to see the entire scenario. The reason it falls back to NTLM from Kerberos is because it cannot get the TGS ticket for SPN (cifs/w2k8r2.home.matws.net). The error is KDC_ERR_S_PRINCIPAL_UNKNOWN. Have you checked if the SPN has been registered properly ?

As far as the DFS Referral version 4, I can see one thing that doesn't meet the requirement to be a version 4 of DFS referral. The TargetSetBoundary bit in ReferralEntryFlags of the first referral response entry MUST be set to 1, as per section 126.96.36.199 of MS-DFSC. In the both response entries returned from Samba , this bit is always 0.
- ReferralEntryFlags: 1024 (0x400)
unused1: (0000010000000...) - Unused
TargetSetBoundary: (.............0..) - The target corresponding to this referral entry is not the first target of a target set.
NameListReferral: (..............0.) - This is not a trusted domain or DC list referral
unused2: (...............0) - Unused
Please let me know what you think.

So the attached pcap show dfs referral traffic between a S4 and XP hosts.
Where we can see that XP is requesting a level 4 referral and that S4 answers to it with an answer following the specification.
After this XP is blocked or fallback to NTLM auth (not shown in this capture but in this one: http://www.matws.net/mat/misc/dfs2.pcap.gz).
So I'm wondering if it's normal, maybe XP didn't appreciate the level 4 answers.
