Hmm, you don't seem to be getting anywhere, could I suggest that you try 
upgrading your wheezy client to samba from backports.
If the problem is still there and if it is proved to be a bug, then you 
stand a chance of getting it fixed, you have little or no chance of 
getting samba 3.6.6 fixed as the 3.6 series is in security fixes only 
mode and will reach EOL when 4.2 comes out , this will probably happen 
well before the end of this year.
