I apologise for my previous reply - I had miss-understood your message.
Your comparative trace was very useful - we don't normally prefer Samba3
as a comparative target, but in this case the issue is quite clear.  

Your client has asked that the server not pull the file from tape (for a
HSM system), using an extra option which we don't yet support.  Samba3
works, because it simply ignores options it does not know about.

I'll add support for this flag (in terms of a no-op, until someone does
HSM support in Samba4) and get a new version to you shortly.
