[Samba] OSX losses link when samba is restarted

We run Samba 3.0.24 on a FC5 and RHEL4-AS systems. Works great with
windows clients, and OSX clients work great with it too except for one
Whenever I restart samba (with /etc/init.d/smb restart) any OSX client
that has a samba share open will lose that connection, and so if a person
had a file open and was editing, all changes made since the last save are
lost. This of course does NOT happen with windows clients, they are smart
enough to recognize the link is reconnected. But OSX losses the link
completely, and the share has to be remounted, which is really silly.
I'm not sure if there is some smb.conf setting that will fix this for OSX,
and not screw things up for windows clients. Or maybe there is an OSX
tweek to make on each client? I searched this list for OSX and found no
similar problems. Arghgh.
Anyone see this behavior and know of a fix.
Our OSX clients are 10.4.9.
Thanks in advance,
