after spending my saturday afternoon with digging into the problem and 
comparing smb.conf files of servers where this problem occurs and where 
not, I found out the following:

When I remove
    max protocol = SMB2
from my smb.conf and restart Samba, the problem seems to be gone (but I 
had to restart my Win7 workstation, too).

If the problem is related to SMB2, this would explain, why I didn't had 
this issue on XP machines (SMB2 was introduced in Vista).

Does this fixes/workaround on your servers, too?
