Marco, you are using the ad-Backend, right?

Have you tried with rid-backend or at least
"idmap config LNFFVG : unix_nss_info = no"
in smb.conf ?
Some time ago i have had "this"  Problems with some openSUSE based clients.
If i remeber correctly, behavior was better after changing smb.conf to rid-

To update to 4.18 could be also an good idea, because there are some changes 
wich should help..

Good Luck!
(sorry, for bad english)
