[Samba] NT domain login no longer works after distro upgrade (samba 4.2.12 -> 4.3.11, 4.4.5)

Workstation  is member of NT domain, DC is samba 3.6.12.

Was running Fedora 22 (samba 4.2.12), domain logins were working fine.

Upgraded to Fedora 23 (samba 4.3.11) and domain logins no longer work:
"Domain Controller unreachable, using cached credentials instead." Can
connect to shares on the DC (e.g., with smbclient) without problem.

Upgraded to samba 4.4.5 (from Fedora 24), issue still present.

I'm seeing the following errors in log.winbindd-idmap:

After installing samba 4.4.5, there are no more complaints about "unable
to stat module", but the rest of the logs are the same.

I am also seeing SELinux errors for winbindd, but not sure whether they
are relevant.

Looking for some hints about direction to pursue debugging the problem.
