Description of problem:
I have a fedora server/workstation running samba, this serves neytwork
shares to a small group of winxp and linux boxes.
After a while the linix client (which happens to be the same box as
the server) drops connection to samba.
The XP boxes have no problems
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. smbmount share eg: smbmount //data_cc/datacc data1
2. share mounts and works fine for a while
Actual Results: after a while share stops working with many error
messages on root console (noton console that mounted)
Smbfs is part of the Linux kernel, not part of Samba. I'm
