smbd processes won't go away

Running Samba 2.0.6, on Sun SC1000 (4 CPUs) with Solaris 2.6

smbd processes don't seem to terminate although the connections don't
show-up  with netstat.  The client session seems to terminate, and the
connection is terminated, but the smbd process seems to hang around waiting.

smb.conf specifies "deadtime=5", and in most cases there is no open file
associated with the smbd process, but nothing seems to make the smbd process
go away.
