Isn't smbd -i shutting down after serving one request anyway? What's the
point of having printing around for that case?

Or are you proposing to make smbd -i behave like samba -i? Then I'd
strongly vote for a mode of operation where you can also use -M single.
I'd appreciate having single-process mode on embedded systems in any
case. :)
