This is really strange: today I was not able to reproduce the problem. 
Neither with smbclient, nor with mount.cifs.

Tried with 2 of the 3 Windows machines which showed the original 
problem, but today all copies with file sizes from 50 GB up to 150 GB 
went fine, using SMB 3.11.

Well, it looks like we might never know what the problem was.

Thanks anyway,
