| I (and probably lots of people) don't yet fully understand
| each and every parameter, but is this problem related to the
| "deadtime" parameter? Just curious.
Sorta: deadtime is included so that Samba can spot a
client that's still alive, but isn't doing anything
and doesn't have any files open. It can then disconnect
the client and eliminate one smbd process.
It defaults to off: you'd turn it on if you have
a very large number of clients or a machine with
a known small memory.
