We saw your question from the first posting. This is a user-supported list. We 
are all rather busy with our normal work. If your need is urgent you may want 
to consider paid support. Details of paid for support providers are available 
from the Samba web site.

Yes, if you log into SWAT as the 'root' account. You will need to kill 
connections, not users.

See above.

That will require some diagnostics work to find the answer. Your information 
is not sufficient to provide a meaningful answer at this time.
