SMB2 not used with \\server\share but with \\server.domain\share

I tried to used Samba 3.6.0rc2 with the SMBV2 protocol on VPN WAN 
connections. First of all I had a quick success when sniffing with wireshark: SMB2 
packets!!! VPN connection is also cool :-)

But I also saw SMBv1 packets to the same server from the same client 
(Vista SP2).

I found the differences came reproduceable from the following on the same 
\\server\share => SMBV1 used
\\server.domain\share => SMBV2 used

Negotiate Protocol Request:
\\server\share => Vista requests NO SMB 2.002 dialect, therefore SMBV1 is used
Same server:
\\server.domain\share => Vista requests SMB 2.002 dialect, therefore SMBV2 is used

Since in the media application \\server\share is configured I can not 
easily reconfigure to \\server.domain\share.

Any ideas how to use also \\server\share with SMBV2?

Domain controller is an "old" SMBV1 Linux machine.

Details about build and environment can be found below.
