Hmm, maybe this points us to the problem. As Tomasz said the machine account
authentication is not working well with Samba domain controllers. Samba is
emulating a Windows 2000 domain (no AD). Maybe machine authentication is only
working in AD domains.

As I am using Samba domains only I am also using a dedicated user account which
is allowed to access the share. This works quite OK but I fully agree that using
the machine account would be quite an elegant way to authenticate.
