Properly stopping samba

I have noticed that since the move to the 2.2.X branch of samba
that it takes a considerably longer time to stop samba. I believe that
this is the side effect of the processes each trying to clean the locking
database, and what ever else gets cleaned on close. This is just a
hypothesis that I have. I just wanted to know if what I am seeing is
indeed the side effect of the cleaning going on at close. Also when I stop
samba is there a way to do so that doesn't trigger all of the processes to
attempt to do this clean, if that is indeed what is happening?
