I re-tested this for your, this works ok for me.
on the server ( samba 4.1.2 sernet samba)
path = /
read only = No
on client 3.6.6 Debian
mount -t cifs -o username=Administrator,domain=DOMAIN,sec=ntlmv2 //SERVERNAME1/root /mnt
df -h gives.
//SERVERNAME1/root 9.1G 645M 8.0G 8% /mnt
ls -al /mnt/
drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 0 2013-12-04 10:42 .
drwxr-xr-x 24 root root 4096 2012-09-06 09:24 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 2013-11-07 16:57 bin

drwxr-xr-x 120 root root 0 2013-12-09 09:43 etc
drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 0 2013-12-04 12:17 home
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 2013-12-04 10:42 initrd.img -> /boot/initrd.img-3.8.0-34-generic
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 2013-11-18 11:24 initrd.img.old -> /boot/initrd.img-3.8.0-33-generic
Time issues in your setup maybe?
my samba client uses : ( Debian Lenny )
smbd -V gives : Version 3.5.6 ( 3.5.6~dfsg-3~bpo50+1 )
cifs-utils 2:4.1-1~bpo50+1 Common Internet File System utilities
kernel : 2.6.32-bpo.5-amd64
