It's obviously bug in 3.6 - although I'm not sure it's the bug from the 
aforementioned link.

Anyway, this is what I did to circumvent this bug on EL6:
* deploy samba4 el6 tech prev packages instead of samba packages
* rebuild cifs-utils RPM as cifssmb4-utils (linked against samba4-libs)

Now, everything works as expected.

This solutions is OK for me, cause we'll be phasing out EL6 in favor of 
EL7 sooner or later (which already has Samba 4.1).
