If you need the script to execute on the server then you could use the
root postexec ( or postexec ) options in smb.conf.  If you need the
script to run on the win95 client, you would probably need to comeup
with a customized logout option ( ie. they run the program to logou /
reboot the client which in turn calls some batch file which could exist
anywhere really.

One of the things I have on my todo list is some accounting scripts (
most likely will be written them in perl ) for the smbd and nmbd logs. 
I could pass them along once they are completed ( haven't started on
them yet though so.... ).

Maybe I should ask if someone already has these?  Didn't see anything
included in the docs/* directory...
