This was what I ment with "Never do a restore and a version change at 
once!" I was puting in bold in the wiki when I wrote this HowTo ;-)

I suggest you start over, but with 4.0.1 and restore again. If 
everything works like expected, upgrade to 4.0.7 (but read all the 
different release notes from the later version. Some early 4.0 version 
release notes said to run samba-tool dbcheck... and samba-tool ntacl ...).

You can remove this from the backup. The backup script is very basic and 
includes a bit more than necessary. That's another reason, why restore 
with release change at once isn't a good idea.

Can you retry with 4.0.1 and say if your Admin accounts are working as 
expected then (without upgrading to 4.0.7)?
