Configuration of CIFS in /extension/ (3.2)

we were running CIFS successfully on Alfresco 2.9. In 3.2 things have changed: the old configuration in $CLASSPATH/alfresco/extension/file-servers-custom.xml isn't recognized by Alfresco any more. I figured out that the configuration mechanism for CIFS changed and put the properties like the ports in That works great, the SMB server starts up (had permission errors before (linux)).

However, we need custom shares. The configuration file $TOMCAT/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/file-servers.xml doesn't have any influence any more (I wonder why it's still there). I found …/classes/alfresco/subsystems/fileServers/default/file-servers-context.xml which is "the one" - a completely different structure but it works, my changes are recognized. As I don't want to mess in the webapps directory I created a custom-file-servers-context.xml in $CLASSPATH/alfresco/extension/ which contains the "filesystemContexts" bean with my customizations. However, it doesn't get read by Alfresco. Any idea how to properly configure CIFS for 3.2?
