FC4 automount not unmounting


I am having problems with automounting samba shares on an FC4 box. The problem is as follows:

Automounting works fine immediately after reboot, here is the relevant line from the /etc/auto.master
Code:
/smb    /etc/auto.smb --timeout=60 --ghost
and from /etc/auto.smb
Code:
video           -fstype=smbfs,uid=500,umask=0000,fmask=777,dmask=000,username=xxxx,password=xxxx      ://192.168.0.3/video
If the windows machine is switched off the shares are not unmounted and once it is restarted the shares are no longer available.
There are many smb_add_request timeouts in the dmesg output.
Rebooting the linux box will fix the problem until the windows box is switched off again.

In rebooting FC4 there is a [FAILED] message for NFS lock daemon.

Attempting to use /sbin/service autofs stop gives the error
Code:
Stopping automount:umount2: Device or resource busy
umount: /smb: device is busy
Can anyone help?

Not sure what the problem was but I have fixed it by stopping the smbd (and nmbd) services and just leaving autofs running.
