After prodding around for a while, I discovered that despite being
configured to, samba is binding itself to the wrong ip address.

The machine with samba on has two ethernet cards, and I have configured
it so that it should bind to both of them. Samba however only binds to
the first card.

I then configured it to bind to the ip address of the second card (the
one I want), but it still will only bind to the first card.

Any ideas?
