[Samba] Question about log messages

Hello list
    We are using samba as a fileserver for over 40 windows clients, (XP 
and 2000) and everything runs smoothly, but
we are observing some error messages in the log, that can be related to 
lost connections that are suffering some of the clients.
Being searching on the web and haven't found nothing concrete yet, that 
can be causing this:

    [2007/02/08 09:54:24, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_data(384)
      read_socket_data: recv failure for 4. Error = Connection reset by peer

Althought it's the client (windows) who is reseting the connection, 
there must be something related to samba that can be done to avoid that? 
The shares are being used for Microsoft Office documents.

 version 3.0.14a-Ubuntu

# Global parameters
        workgroup = XXXXXXX
        server string = Servidor de Ficheros (Samba, Ubuntu)
        passdb backend = tdbsam, guest
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
        dns proxy = No
        ldap ssl = no
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        invalid users = root

Thank you
