[Samba] Samba shares on Linux machine get disconnected after ~ 1 min

I have Samba 3.0.13 running on Suse 9.2 on an i586.

I can browse and connect to the Samba shares on the Linux machine from Windows 
XP and Mac OSX.

However, about 1 min after connecting, the shares are lost and gone from the 
network environment - same for Windows XP and Mac OSX. From time to time, they 
"re-appear" only to be gone after another minute or so.

The Windows shares mounted on the Linux machine work fine.

Is this a known problem?

Regards, Helge
