[Samba] Samba server dropping off the domain

I have strange problem.  Installed 3.6.1 on SL Linux (Scientific Linux 
release 6.1 (Carbon)).

./configure --prefix=/WWW/apps/samba-3.6.1 --with-quotas 

make and make install all clean.

Joined to our windows domain via command:
./net join -S domainserver -w DOMAIN -U adminuser

Start up Samba via web gui and all is working for about 40 minutes to an 
hour. At which point it stops allowing connections.  Only fix is to stop 
Samba and rerun the net join command and then restart Samba which it 
will work for about 40 minutes and then stop again.

Anyone seen this before?
