Copy files does not work for cifs mounts

Created attachment 346539 Screenshot of file not beeing copied in nautilus ;-)
I have many cifs mounts via fstab. After upgrading to kernel 4.9, it's not possible to copy or move files from those mounts in nautilus. The copied file is created, but it never receive the contents (so the file has 0 bytes file size) and the progress indicator never finishes. If the same share is mounted via gvfs, it is working. Also if i copy the files via other tools like the terminal. The error only occurs in nautilus.
Example line from fstab: //remote/www /directory cifs credentials=.credentials,uid=1000,gid=1000,nobrl,cache=none 0 0
With kernel 4.8 (in fact latest tested and working kernel was 4.8.13) everything worked. With kernel 4.9 (tested with 4.9.6, 4.9.7, 4.9.11) the described problem occured.
Tested this on my Arch Linux machine (gnome 3.22.2) as well as the latest openSuse Tumbleweed live dvd, which has the gnome 3.22.2 and kernel 4.9.10
