Hannu, There was a change within a fortnight of the samba 4.0.0 release affecting ACL controls that restricted anonymous LDAP
searches, if you  are able to review the mailing lists for samba and samba-technical, you'll find the details. The intent was to
restrict access to confidential password information, a good thing. I recall a release/upgrade is scheduled for January 22 which may
provide more granular control for ACL's. 

Karolin Seeger's provides release schedule guidance at http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Release_Planning_for_Samba_4.0

Regards, Dewayne
