Easiest way to reset Gnome SMB?

Hi. I am running a Debian 8 system with Gnome, but working inside a Windows shop with Windows file shares. For the most part I'm able to get by fine, since Gnome Nautilus can interact with the SMB file shares. However, I switch back and forth between networks a lot, and occasionally Nautilus SMB will get frozen somehow, where Nautilus is still working, but I cannot open the file shares. I.e., I try to click on them but nothing happens. If I try to press the unmount icon, Nautilus says the shares are still being used. I can workaround by rebooting the computer, but obviously that is a bit of a bother. I am wondering if someone might know of another trick that could force Nautilus to reset these stalled connections without having to do a full reboot.
