The Samba 4.2 release notes contains the following:

If required the old internal winbind can be activated by setting
'server services = +winbind -winbindd'.  Upgrading users with a server
services parameter specified should ensure they change 'winbind' to
'winbindd' to obtain the new functionality.

So what I was proposing was the equivalent (-winbind +winbindd) of the 
inversion of this parameter and see what happens.
Since you are admitting this can be a bug in Samba, why not a bug in the 
turning the winbind types on and off?

Maybe I am very wrong, but I only wanted to help with something that is 
very easy to test.
