[Samba] every increasing connection count followed by load #

I am having a bizarre problem with a samba server here at Edward Waters
Hopefully someone can give me insight to inform me what to look for.
samba version = 3.0.14a
SuSE 9.1, up-to-date-via-apt
AD/W2K3 (no sp)
Winbind using RID algorithm
server purpose: HOMES, DESKTOPS, MY DOCUMENTS, PROFILES
Quotas are: ON
HW Raid 5 (MegaRaid)
4 logical processors (dual+ht).
Linux ewc05 2.6.5-7.151-smp #1 SMP Fri Mar 18 11:31:21 UTC 2005 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
If the number of connections exceeds 155 (per samba counting), the
system load quick escalates to like 700+, and the user count also
suddenly skyrockets. a majority of the samba processes seem to get stuck
in state "D"
inode count usage is unrealisticically high. :)
I deleted all the samba db files, no change.
If I put in a max connections limit of 155, it doesn't "fork bomb".
Where should I start looking?
