Perhaps upgrade Samba to the current 3.5 release or git master?  I'm not
saying that we know of a bug in CentOS 5.5's Samba version, but it's
quite old now, and it's the easy part to change.

Other than that, with a subject like this one, I suspect you will find
that the file server experts on the team (that's not me!) will certainly
want to work with you to narrow this down.
