Attached a trace file while running gpupdate. 

Accessing sysvol works through: \\ip\sysvol and \\dc.domain_name\sysvol 
Doesn´t work through \\domainname\sysvol

So I pushed a few fixes in the Git tree of samba and made a lot of tests 
about this. 
First you need: 
host msdfs = yes in the [global] part of your configuration. 

Then reboot XP / windows7. 

Try to access \\domain.tld\sysvol and also navigate inside it. 
If it works it means that dfs for sysvol is working in most the case it 
will solve Windows7 problems with fetching the GPO. 

If not make trace from the samba server and send us for analysis, trace 
can be done like this: tcpdump -i any host ip_of_the_client -s 16000 -w
