Samba and network browsing



Hello,
 I am using samba-3.0.24-11.fc6 for my workgroup with user security level
simple setup and samba works fine; I have two network interfaces
eth0(internal LAN) & eth1(external), the problem I face is whenever my
internet disconnects and link on eth1 goes down my samba also hangs and
windows clients are unable to access samba shares (probably they could not
find the samba server), I thought this is due to smbd and nmbd listening on
both interfaces eth0 and eth1, so I tried setting following parameters in
smb.conf:

hosts allow = 192.168.10.0/24 127.0.0.1
local master = yes
os level = 65
interfaces = eth0 lo (so that samba will not listen on eth1)
bind interfaces only =yes

but my problem still continues inspite of above settings, but if I execute
"ifdown eth1" (when internet disconnects on eth1) command samba restores its state immediately and now all
clients can access the shares normally.

What parameters I need to set in order to operate samba normally on
interface eth0 only and ignoring the status of eth1?
Is this a firewall issue? (I have setup nat; see below my iptables/nat conf)
Is this NAT problem?
Why samba is not respoding to clients when eth1 goes down?
Please help.
