I really don't know, but I don't think so. Try searching the mail

I would recommend so even though the Samba version is not the cause
of the problem.

: 3.  Maybe  increasing maxuser in /etc/system should solve the problem?
: But it does not feel like the correct way to solve the problem.

This could help since this parameter has a direct impact on the max.
number of processes and files. If you are serving 100+ Windows machines
chances are you have lots of smbd processes. Can you see how many
processes you have just before you have to reboot you machine (use
the ps command)?
