If it was predictable, then you could just raise the log level to 10 and 
wait for it to happen, copy the logs and then restart samba.

As it isn't predictable, you are going to have to set up your log 
rotation system to rotate the log files every day until it does happen, 
hopefully at this point, the logs will reveal your problem.
