Problem with Samba 1.9.18p10 on Solaris 2.5.1

I have a problem accessing files on NT and 95 using Samba version
1.9.18p10.  The files that I am accessing are in ClearCase (version
control software) on a Solaris Ultra 60 server. They are source files
and are compiled on NT on the command line through batch files. If I
fire more than one build (batch file) then once in a while I get a
fatal error from the Microsoft compiler - "Could not open source file"
while this file is very much present on the Unix server. Each of these
builds takes upto three hours. If I do one build at a time it goes
through fine but if I do three of them simultaneously then I get this
problem.  However the samba connection itself is not broken and I am
able to see the same "missing file" at a later point of time when the
system is not loaded with builds.

I replaced samba with PC NFS software (DiskAccess from Intergraph) and
this problem didn't occur in the same build conditions. But I would
like to continue with samba instead of changing over to NFS.

Any suggestions on how to fix this are very welcome. 

Thanks in advance,
