  In all your cases, the client may be timing out and disconencting,
planning to reconnect at a later time.
  This is a known feature (bug? disfeature?) of Windows clients,
which need to be able to reconnect in any case, lest server crashes
mess up clients!

   You may want to set up a log file for a particular client machine
and capture a log at at least log level = 3 for discussion on this
list: fee free to send me mail for how-tos and help in finding
the log lines that we all should look at.
