It's not a problem unique to Samba - network filesystems in general
always seem to cause problems when the remote machine goes down. We've
had much the same problem with NFS on machines at work - if an NFS
server needs to go down for any reason, it's best to make sure any
client accessing it ceases to do so first. Otherwise, a reboot of the
client is probably in order.
