Are you mounting the share on your local filesystem with either
smbmount or smbmnt?  If so, that's its behavior when the remote server
drops the connection or otherwise screws things up.  You might want to
see if there's anything about it in your logs, or try using smbclient
instead of smbmount and see if you can get more information with it's
debug information.
