The problem is that I have no idea what options are still relevant for
Samba 4 and which aren't. idmap configuration like suggested for samba
3.x doesn't seem to have any effect on this problem, e.g.

I'd rather backport the jessie/sid packages, or just stick with our old
pam_ldap+pam_ccreds configuration.
Switching all clients to Ubuntu would be a whole other nightmare…
