This is a reply I got as a direct reply which didn't go to the list.

Are you using "roaming profiles"..?

I would include the following options in your smb.conf

  keep alive = 160
  dead time = 240

Set the "number_of_seconds" to your need's, Do some reading 
about them in
you smbd man_pages...

Secondly, What you could do is to simply write a small Perl or 
even bash_script to run from cron every 5min's or so to look at 
processes and check the smbd ones status and if "zombie" then 
kill -9 "that_PID". You could also use substrates output to make 
your process activity checking even better...
