Ah ok - that's information we didn't originally have :-).

So this is actually a custom version of 3.6 then.

Easiest thing to do is make your modified 3.6.x source available
(there are others who might want to see that patchset) and then
upload a wireshark trace of the problem. Remember you're asking
for help with a modified (unsupported) smbclient version.

Do the 10.9..5 servers work with the 4.1 client ? If so, then
there's an error in your back-port. If not, then we have a
generic bug we need to fix.

Knowing which is the case would be very valuable :-).
