I have the same problem, but I suppose that this is because I
compilled samba with nt acl and/or msdfs. This problem was appeared in
2.2.3. In 2.2.5 compilation without any parametras (except prefix)
give a working version. But after enabling nt acl and msdfs samba
start to close connection after some time, however after some retries
connection was restored (with all shares at the same time).
