If you no longer have any Win9x or WinME clients, you can
add the following to smb.conf:
smb ports = 445
I did this and it stopped the log noise. Unfortunately, some
folks here starting installing a Windows AFS client which apparently
instead of registering as new file service is instead designed
around manipulating the client stack via 139 so I was forced to
turn it back on....sheesh.
