AFAIK this is a problem of the older samba 3.x versions,
If i recall it right, it was fix somewhere around version 3.0.14.
at least the actual version does not suffer from it anymore.
The only clean solution is to upgrade your sambaversion, but beware 
there habe been some big changes since 3.0.10, so you should test the 
upgrade at an non-production server first.
