please provide some more information to reduce the possible 75381 causes 
for your problem to a smaller number ;-)

* Any messages/backtraces in the logs when the crash appears?

* What kind of crashes are these? Does only a user smbd process crashes? 
Or do the parent smbd process die? Or maybe nmbd/winbindd?

* Can you try a self compiled version (preferred 3.6.18 if you want to 
stay in the 3.6 tree)? Maybe the problem/bug is meanwhile fixed/gone.

* ...?
