This doesn't cause a hang/lock/or anything, the shares can be mounted right back up. But depending on the work being done at the time, it can result in a good amount of work being lost.

More likely to be a MacOS bug than a Samba one.

I've been running with my media server at home
with one-user-no-security for *years* :-). But
I don't have any MacOS clients.
