Strange Win2k / Samba share problem

I'm using several win2k clients (SP2) together with a debian server running
Several shares are mounted from the samba server via a logon script
(net use ...) by each win2k client. One of this shares is the [homes] share,
all others are static.
Mounting works without any problem, but after a few minutes all shares in the
Explorer windows are crossed red (as if the connection to a network share is
lost). Trying a "net use" on the win2k client shows, that all network shares
are disconnected. Trying smbstatus on the linux server shows, that the
connections still are valid. One annotation: I have several shares who are
not mounted by the logon script, but are nevertheless shown by smbstatus in
the beginning. These are lost when win2k shows the other shares disconnected.
When clicking on the "disconnected" drive in the explorer I get the
connection, but without changing the red cross on the drive letter.
Any clues how to solve this?
