The first question about what you're really running may have been a bit
tactless, but your response really put me in mind to skip considering your
problem.  Please remember--everyone here is a volunteer, not a paid drudge.

That said, what distro you're running *is* a useful bit of information.

I rather doubt you need to restart the server--have you simply stopped
and restarted the Samba services?  *If* that works, my suspicion is
it's something with Samba services, not the OS in general; the fact
that it fails on such a long baseline makes me suspect something like
a memory leak.  A Q'n'D workaround until a permanent fix is found would
be to schedule a SMB restart periodically, while checking for updates.

Relax a bit, and g'luck,
