Ok. The prob was, as usual, as stupid as ever possible.
My nmbd process hasn't been restarted for a very long time,
even if I stopped and restarted samba multiple times. It
looks like a prob in the startup script or in samba handling
of pidfiles or something -- because `stop' action is unable
to find a running "old" nmbd (and there's no pidfile of it),
and new nmbd can't be started because it can't bind to the
sokets. nmbd logfile is empty for a long time too.
So basically I have a stray nmbd which did not do anything
useful but prevented real nmbd from starting.
Killing it manually and starting real nmbd helped, and now
I successfully joined a win7 machine to a classic NT4-style
domain running by samba4.
So Andrew's suspicion was exactly right. But the cause was,
Thank you very much for the help!
