I guess you are describing a situation where you have a lot of process
hanging where the smbd is basically stuck.
How many smbd process do you have a around when this happen?
(ps xa |grep smbd|wc -l)
How many clients?
On what OS are you running this?
Is /usr/local/samba a local file system (ext2/3?)?
And most importantly can you reproduce this at will ?
