Does everything works fine in 4.0.1 and only after you've upgraded you 
encountered these problems?

How many users does your installation have? If it's not that big, you 
can try to work around by removing the accent in the CN, fix everything 
and then try if the problem is still there in 4.1.5. And if, you should 
open a bug report (https://bugzilla.samba.org/). But maybe the problem 
is meanwhile fixed (haven't searched bugzilla about it)

At work we avoid using german umlauts and other special characters in 
usernames, as they often cause anger and additional work. :-)

When you upgrade, don't forget the other important steps, that should be 
done when you switch from an early 4x version:
