I could test that but in production running from direct source builds is 
not permitted here. There must be a repo available or at least the 
ability to build RPMs.

I've tried before rebuilding upstream Samba using RH spec files but I've 
never succeeded in getting all the packages to build correctly :-( 
That's why I use the Sernet repo.

Another interesting point is that I've just upgraded the test cluster to 
4.4.6 and it appears to be working, although that is only two hosts. The 
prod setup is 6 hosts, with two sub-clusters, so there could be a 
difference there.
