Dear Mr. Mrs. 

When a windows share is mounted in to a linux-share running samba and anohter windows mashine accesses the linux-share...then all is ok. But when the mounted mashine crashes for example (if running ms windows its not rare ;) and the another windows mashine trys to access the linux-share with the unmounted but crashed the request hangs!

Is there a workarround for this? e.g. mechanism that samba checks the mounted windows mashine and if not arrichable then force umount and when arrichable then mount it!

 Thank u verry much!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards
