Sorry... you mean to tell me that putting samba in inetd was the key for

I always thought inetd to be used when samba is scarcely used.

I had to take samba out of inetd because it would die due to excess of
samba requests (I know you can change (nowait.max - default 40) the number
of connection per minute the inetd can take before it thinks things are
bad - but still making it standalone worked better/saffer for me)

Can you confirm that taking samba out of inetd at this moment makes your
50+ setup fail?
