Yes, it's reliable and Samba is working on another machine just fine. That 
box is running Samba 3.0.20 on Slackware.  This is 3.2.5 on Ubuntu. 8.10

I've done some further testing and it's affecting all OS's (Linux 
included), not just Vista.    Now it seems that if I don't use the share 
for 4 or 5 minutes, it becomes inactive and I'm unable to reconnect using 
the name.. however, I can reconnect via the IP.  Then, after another 
period of 4 or 5 minutes of inactivity, the connection is lost and I have 
to reconnect via the name.

This is really beginning to drive me nuts.. anyone have any ideas?

This means the client disconnected. We (smbd) don't know
why. Do you have a reliable network ?
