Maybe it's because you hadn't umounted the smb connections before you stopped
the network?
If not, then skip from here :-)
I have simillar issues: I mount daily some samba shares and if I forgot to
umount them before @ midnight the network goes down (the samba server backs up
and stop the sharing), so next morning everything is really slow (cd, mc, and
all the things that connects to some of the not really mounted directory).
Then I usually umount the samba share (as root) or remount (mount -o remount
/share), and it works.
AFAIK It's a known samba issue, if anybody know any sollution to this please
inform me.

(sorry about my english, and the disclaimer, and the sorry :-) )
