[Samba] Lots of Samba (smbd) processes

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew why there would be so many Samba (smbd) processes running on my SCO OpenServer 5.0.5 system?   I found an awful lot of them running, much more that what I would expect given the number of Windows PC's on the network.  One of the users was having trouble accessing a file on the SCO system, and that is when I discovered this.   I actually had to write a program to kill (kill -9) all the Samba's (smbd) processes, and then restart Samba.   All was well after that.

Thanks for your help!
