Ah, but to the client disconnecting an individual connection via
idle timeout on Samba and stopping the server service on W2K are
*identical* at the network layer - ie. they both tear down the TCP

Under W2K TCP connections are never idled, so they remain active
to the box and thus to re-create what Samba is actually doing
stopping the server service is required, and indeed when this
is done the same client bug is revealed.

It looks like idling a client connection is dangerous to a
Win98 box, we can only do a work-around for this as the bug
is in the Win9x client, I'll think some more about this.
