Bucking when put on contact?

Is it common situation that horse may start bucking (and other misbehaves) when you keep constant contact? Frankly I've never heard about it before...

Depends on the horse. If it's never had to have a contact then yes, some of them will 'complain' about it.

That's weird. I mean I keep contact (although not constant due to me not being a good english rider :) but pretty consistent for the last couple months or so). My instructor got on her yesterday for the 1st time since last Fall to give it a try, and she bucked under her (plus refused to move really even with the crop, swished her tail, and looked very pissed). The instructor blames it on her not liking the contact. So I was wondering if it's indeed a case.

BTW, I used the strap around the neck to move up her shoulders yesterday. That was TOUGH I must say (to operate 4 reins in same time).

I would say the mare wasn't impressed about being made to go forward into a consistent contact, more so than just plain contact itself. If your instructor was trying to get her forward and into the bridle, and the mare isn't used to having to do that sort of work yet, it's likely that she's going to have a bit of a complaint about it.

She'll get over it ;) As long as she's not allowed to get away with it, by having the contact removed or leg taken off, then she'll come to realise that there's no point in putting up an argument because it's going to happen regardless.
