tng daemons not starting: create_pipe_socket error

I downloaded the latest CVS version today from 
pserver:anoncvs at 
The 'config' and 'make all install' went without error.

Everything ended up in /usr/local/samba including some things that
I would have expected in var and etc!

I have two questions:
1) What daemons need starting, and in what order
2) I get the following error when I start the various
   daemons such as lsarpcd and samrd:

/usr/local/samba/var/locks/.msrpc 448 
/usr/local/samba/var/locks/.msrpc/lsarpc 448
remove on /usr/local/samba/var/locks/.msrpc/lsarpc failed

The daemons then seem to freeze - they don't die. 
They respond to a kill -TERM, but don't log their shutdown message.

This seems to lead to problems with samedit not being able to reach
samrd. The smbd and nmbd daemons seem to be running ok, but I can't 
create any users to test further.

I am running SuSE Linux 6.4 with the latest patches.
I was previously running Samba 2.0.7 and NT4.

Help! and thank in advance,
