first of all many thanks for the quick answer and your efforts to dig into this - highly appreciated. I posted the question for a workaround here too: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/iot-hub-mqtt-support/#comment-2647324449 - maybe there is a way around from azure side.
I will create a bug in bugzilla and hope there is a fix soon.
