I had a similar problem the other night, though not with Samba specifically
(ie. just trying to dial up to a ppp server). The problem was in the routing
tables also, I found that by knocking out the ethernet card (ifconfig eth0
down) ... everything worked fine. You can put the commands to bring the eth0
down and up again into your dialup and logoff scripts ....

this may be the same problem you're having
