[Samba] Samba stops working on HP-UX 11

I've had a consistent problem with Samba from 2.2.1 onwards, maybe even
before then, I'm not sure when it started.

Anyway, Samba will randomly stop responding to any requests, although
it usually occurs after transfering large amounts of data (1 GB+).  To
get around the problem, I've been restarting samba every night, but we
still have the problem occasionally.
smbclient shows:

atgdet05:/usr/local/samba/bin% ./smbclient -L atgdet05
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session request to ATGDET05 failed (SUCCESS - 0)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (SUCCESS - 0)

The log file is filled with lines similar to the following:
