Thanks for pointing this out.

To keep the momentary changes as small as possible I consider upgrading
to samba-4.x at first, without touching the NT4-style domain for now.

gentoo linux provides samba-4.2.9 as unstable package, I assume this
would run OK as well for our rather simple use case. Would the move to
4.2.9 help around that specific bug as well?

thanks for helping, Stefan
