[Samba] Too many open files

We have Dell Quad Xeon server that we end up rebooting about every 2-3
weeks when the number of open samba files sky rockets. The system is a
ClearCase server system. We have been monitoring this system for a few
months now and are not able to pin down a cause to this issue. The
system keeps a pretty constant number of samba open files until what
ever triggers the issue and then the number of file opens climbs at a
steep exponential rate.

We have an excel graph, but the moderator rejected the large e-mail.
