besides that SIGHUP reloads configs when i comment out a share it 
disappears without a hard restart- the only problem are as so often 
apple clients which are closing the connecting due a reload (a few days 
ago cleaned up samab configs, SIGHUP and the phone ringed because two 
users got a disconnect message)

[root at srv-rhsoft:~]$ > samba.log
[root at srv-rhsoft:~]$ killall -s SIGHUP smbd
[root at srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat samba.log

P.S.: i *hate* this cluttering with source-files and lines
