Win95 and Win98 - hanging while shutdown

I have a small problem. As I installed a Samba-server at one of our customers (office of foreign affairs, AKA consulate), Win98r2 does not want to shut down, the system hangs. It looks like if Windows "forgets" to disconnect the services before shutdown (at least the system hangs - over night (!!) and according to logfiles the workstation
has not made any disconnect). As I disconnect manually (i.e. log out and bypass the login-screen), I can shutdown normally.
At #linux (or was int in IRC I was told that was a bug in Win95 in combination with IE4 and in Win98 ...  Same problem I would encounter if the server
were a Win NT server instead of a Samba one (2.0.4b).
If that were the case, I would like to know if there is a possibility for a nice automatic workaround or even a bugfix.
