Try setting:
debug level = 3
in your smb.conf file, and tail the logs smbd and (if you have it 
configured) the specific log file for the desktop that is 
re-authenticating numerous times.  Perhaps you can correlate these logs 
against anything logged on the Windows side in Event Viewer.

While I'm not offering any specific quick fixes, I hope this helps you 
diagnose the problem,
