no login on ppp disconnection

hello.. I have been having this strange problem for a long time with samba,
and I am not sure where to look to resolve it.
I have samba running as a pdc to windows 98, and windows NT boxes, and that
same samba machine also has a ppp connection to the internet.
the samba services are only bound to the ethernet addapter on that machine,
yet for some reason when my ppp connection goes away (I got disconnected
for one reason or another) the machines on the lan (the win98, and NT boxes
previously mentioned) are no longer capable of loggin into the domain.. the
cannot find the domain controller.
I must then recconnect the ppp connection, and then restart samba before
the machines can login again.
if the machines are still logged in they can access the shares just fine
and you would never know there is a problem.
and when you run a /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb stop
you get a 
Shutting down SMB services: smbd nmbd kill: (26056) - No such pid
even though the process was listed before issueing the command.

any Idea what is causeing this, and how I can resolve it?
