	I had the same issue. I assume that you are using Samba 2.2.1a.

	smbd -V	(this command will tell you)

	I upgraded to Samba 2.2.2 and it went away.

Subject: Red crosses on Mapped drives

I am getting red crosses on the mapped drives of some win2k pro machines
connecting to a samba pdc.  I don't have them logging into the domain and
the drives are disconnecting (it happens on win2k server too).  There is a
parameter for win2k server to autodisconnect the drive after 15 minutes
which can be changed with:

net config server /autodisconnect:TIME

and there is a registry key in win2k for autodisconnect set for 15 minutes.
Is there something on samba that autodisconnects clients?  Just wondering
since I am getting autodisconnect quite a bit only by some machines.
