It seems possible, although not recommended, to run nmbd in standalone mode as a workaround.

This requires in smb.conf:
  server role check:inhibit = yes
  server services = <exclude the nbt service>

I found a reference here: http://samba.2283325.n4.nabble.com/lock-directory-wins-td4637035.html#a4637053 and Univention seems to do it this way as well.
