[Samba] Samba 3.5.15 disconnections with MAC OS clients

I am connecting about 5 Mac 10.7/10.8 clients to a Samba 3.5.15 server. The Mac clients are running normal MS Office applications. I see that (very often) the clients run into problems trying to save documents (especially Excel) to the exported Samba Share. Sometimes I cannot connect to the Samba server and have to explicitly reconnect via the finder.
All my clients are members of a Windows AD domain (Win2k3SP2). There are about 200 users configured. I have also connected the Samba server to the AD domain.
Here is the interesting part. The problem only occurs on Mac clients that are members of the domain. Also if I leave the domain from any of the Mac clients, I am able to save the documents without any problems.
Has anybody seen this behavior? Please let us
Thanks in advance
