This is most odd.  The first thing we need to do is run with -d5, 

The best way to start debugging this, as I cannot see the process
exiting normally, is to run it as:

gdb --args samba -i -M single

break _exit
break exit

That we hope will trap the process exit, then run 'bt full' to help
track down the culprit. 

(This is quite unusual, if the exit was abnormal, it would typically
print to the logs).
