Umm..ok. I can just state the facts, I'm not pretending to understand
them. To make sure I'm communicating properly, If I do:
the old processes and locked files are gone
If I do (as root) from the command line:
kill -9 <pid>
on one of them, the process and locked file is still there.
It's as if it takes killing samba in it's entirety, for it to clear

That's what I was understanding, but in some cases, it is not happening,
even on a "clean" disconnect of the client (such as an orderly user
shutdown of their box).
