...huh. Yes, of course. I was fixated on the *NIX side and didn't think how Windows behaves in this situation.

Well, I am happy to report that Samba behaves exactly like Windows in this regard. It still vexes me that I can't find a way to boot users off a share they shouldn't have access to anymore, but I guess that's less of a Samba problem and more of a problem best solved with a File Share Access Compliance Squad convincing people to log off once in a while...
