There is a handly trick for dealing with this:  use include files.

At the end of the globals section put a:

include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

Then create a file like: /etc/samba/smb.conf.PC02004 
debug level = 10
 - where PC02004 is the client you are testing from.  You''ll just get
enhanced logs for that client.

Samba will pick up the change almost immediately and you can create and
remove smb.conf.%m files whenever you want.  No down time involved.

Very sweet.
