Samba-SIGTERM: going down...error

    We have a mac XServe server running OSX 10.4.7. It's primary use is as
    a file server. Every so often (randomly), the windows XP Pro computers
    on the network will stop connecting to the server. I will go to the
    logs and look and I always notice in the "Windows Name Service Log"
    (/var/log/samba/log.nmbd) a message that says [example below]:
    Got SIGTERM: going down...

    If I stop the Windows service and then start it again, the file server
    works again with no problems (at least temporarily).

    I am pretty sure this is the point when SAMBA has a problem, but Is
    there more info that I can provide to help with troubleshooting this?

    Area of Server Admin that I am talking about: WINDOWS.

    Thank you.

    I am still periodically having this problem. I have heard rumors about
    multiple windows computers accessing the same files on a linux box
    being the possible cause of the Samba-SIGTERM error, but I would like
    further info on that or other possibilities. I want to be able to fix
    this random windows file server service crashing problem.

    Is there anyone out there that can help me yet?
