Do you have panic actions in you log files ??
also check the proccessor time (top or so..)..

last time i had this, was with version prior to version 302..
also try to stop samba twice..

in the situation i use to had, there where still
samba processes running after i runned ./smb stop from
the init/rc.d scripts.. (had to do i twice)
