This is not correct.
The SMBD is a service. The SMBD service defined in your IP stack
configuration runs the SMBD_STARTUP.COM to create the SMBD when needed.
The NMBD is not a service. Look at your SAMBA_STARTUP.COM file and you'll
see that it creates the NMBD as a detached process. This is normally run
only once, at system boot. You should not have an NMBD service defined
that runs this (or the samba_exe:nmbd_startup.com that it uses as its
input, either) - I'm not sure what would happen, but it couldn't be good.

Well, in this case you were right.

This is all very strange.
