Results obtained on a VAX/VMS-7.1+UCX and a standard link
(no C compilation). Followwing is the nmbd_startup.log after
a "normal" startup :

$ arch = f$getsyi("ARCH_NAME")
$ nmbd :== $samba_root:[bin]nmbd
$ opt = f$trnlnm("SAMBA_NMBD_OPTIONS")
$ nmbd "-d3"
  SYSTEM       job terminated at 12-MAY-2003 16:12:25.58

  Accounting information:
  Buffered I/O count:             113         Peak working set size:    2844
  Direct I/O count:               554         Peak page file size:      7945
  Page faults:                   1767         Mounted volumes:             0

--> It fails without any message at all!

When I put the -i option, the behaviour seems to be correct (and it works fine) :

$ arch = f$getsyi("ARCH_NAME")
$ nmbd :== $samba_root:[bin]nmbd
$ opt = f$trnlnm("SAMBA_NMBD_OPTIONS")
$ nmbd "-d1" "-i"
Netbios nameserver version 2.2.8 started.

standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option
find_response_record: response packet id 22192 received with no matching record.
find_response_record: response packet id 22193 received with no matching record.

I've no idea why this difference.
