Will try, but how his this different from disconnecting from the share and
reconnecting? Shouldn't the forked smbd close after this happens? So far
the only two surefire ways to make sure the "admin user = " and perhaps
other parameters take effect after a reload are :

1) completely logout and log back in on the client (which is attached to
the same domain)
2) restart samba
