Thanks to everyone who replied on this. 

There were NFS failures in /var/adm/messages corresponding to the times 
on, some but not all, of the hung smbd processes.  We'll implement the 
"keepalives" parameter suggested by David.  

NFS hopping is pretty crucial to our current Samba architecture.  Its 
one of the features which we really like about Samba and usually works 
fine over our network.  So we can't get rid of the problem by only 
Samba serving local filestore.
