I had a similar problem once (only once ever tho' - weird).
Anyway, samba stopped allowing users to log in because when they logged out
their smbd processes were not dying and samba was not prepared to start any
more processes. I stopped the samba service did a killall -TERM smbd and a
killall -TERM nmbd just to be sure and then restarted the services. - I have
not had a problem since.
Does this problem keep reoccuring for you?
