That was the clue!  The -d10 option set 'log level = 1', and when tridge
and I wrote the lp_set_cmdline support for Samba3, we didn't correlate
that 'debug level' and 'log level' (among other examples of aliases)
where the same parameter. 

This meant that when the smb.conf was re-loaded, we didn't skip handling
the debug level, as the flag wasn't set.  

(We missed this detail of the requirement when we ported
lp_set_cmdline() from Samba4).

Thanks for the clues.  Attached is the patch to fix this.
