[Samba] Samba locks with PC crash

We are experiencing this current problem: some users are locking Lotus Notes
files on a Samba share. When their pc crash (ex: power off the pc without
shutting down windows), the file is still locked. So when they boot up a few
mins after the crash, they can't open Lotus Notes because some files are still
locked by themself. So we need to kill the samba process. This is happening a
lots of time in a week and we are looking for a better solution.

I just want to know how does Samba is working with this kind of situation?
(timeout maybe? if there is a timeout, after how many time?)
