[Samba] Denying access to shares from time to time

Dear all.

I've been having problems with people accessing shares in my samba 
3.6.6. The point is that when the server has started everybody can 
access the requested shares, but after a while (next day in some cases). 
People are not allowed to access common shares. The only clue I can 
obtain from the log file is:
[2014/11/25 09:06:00.910024,  2] auth/auth.c:309(check_ntlm_password)
   check_ntlm_password:  authentication for user [avila] -> [avila] -> 
[avila] succeeded
[2014/11/25 09:06:00.914197,  2] 
   user 'avila' (from session setup) not permitted to access this share 
[2014/11/25 09:06:00.914277,  1] smbd/service.c:805(make_connection_snum)
   create_connection_session_info failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

The authentification succeded but the system denies access. In fact the 
user avila is allowed to access the share etiquetas. When I restart the 
server (service samba restart) everything works all right again until 
the next time.

Any idea?

Thanks in advande and best wishes.
