Nothing like writing to the list to get some help, to find the solution 
on his own....
Win7 was prepared for samba NT4 style domain (registry modified), and 
samba was running happy. I guess somewhat, somewhere, somehow got stuck 
in the server. There was nothing in the logs, so I decided to reboot. 
And voila, the domain is available to win7 and can be connected to.

Thanks anyway for the patience.
