revisiting the multiple users using single smbd process

We have about 10 citrix servers (WTS 4.0, Citrix 1.8 SP2) that connect up to our 
file server (Enterprise 3500 Running Solaris 2.6 and Samba 2.0.7). 

The smb connection to the file server exists as a single smbd process 
for each citrix server. We belive this is causing a couple of different 

We've applied the registry "fix" as indicated in the samba digests'. 
(Specifically, 2000-10-06 by Gerald Carter):

The problem is, after we apply this fix and reboot the machine, the citrix 
server is trashed. Specifically, netbios will not come up and the server
has to be rebuilt. We've had to do rebuilt two servers now. 

Anyone else had this bad luck and know what to do about it?
