[Samba] pam mounted shares unmount themselves after a while, sorta

I have a samba PDC and about 20 linux clients. The linux clients
authenticate to the PDC via pam_winbind and mount a share automatically
at login via pam_mount.
The problem is that client-side the shares seem to get into a bad state
after a while (like a day). The share does not show up when I run df,
but it still seems to be partially mounted. I say "partially mounted"
because I can run smbumount on the share and I don't get an error.
After I run smbumount, I can logout/login and the automatic mounting via
pam_mount will work.
This problem may be partially due to our less than perfect network.
Does anyone have this problem, and is there a workaround?
