Hmm i see you have a lot of "broken pipes" and "oplock_break failures"
think your prob might be there..
i'm not sure, but the broken pipes might come from that oplock issue..
are you running kernel 2.4.2x, by anny change??
(coz' as far as i know, it has a oplock prob)

you could try to disable the oplocks to see what happens.. (with in
samba that is)
also try setting your log level up, so you have more debug info.
