Samba Connectivity Issues, Version 2.0.6/2.0.7

Hello, everyone:

I am very new to this list, and perhaps this has been brought up previously, so I apologize in advance if this has been asked before.  I am taking over administration for Samba here, and the following was brought to my attention this morning:

It seems if there is some sort of interruption of connectivity between
the samba server and a subnet, samba will sometimes not renew
connectivity to that subnet. You get error messages on the PC side indicating that
it can't talk to the server; no messages in the samba log.

When we've seen this, the symptoms are that NOONE on that subnet can
connect in any way; other subnets are unaffected.

What we've done to fix it is to restart the samba daemons on the server
side.  If anyone else has run into this, what have you done to get around it, besides having to restart samba?

Thanks, in advance, for any help.
