I had the same problem with version 1.9.17p1 and Windows for WorkGroups.
Reverting back the nmbd to an older (1.9.16p9) version solved the problem.
Now I am running smbd 1.9.17p1 and nmbd 1.9.16p9 together and everything
works fine. It seems therefore that the 1.9.17p1 version of nmbd is broken.
I posted this before, but I did not received any reply.
Another problem I had, that with 1.9.17p1 the smbd processes are owned by
root except for short intervals when the process is actually serving the
client. I would like all smbd processes to be owned by the appropriate
user. I would make my life so much easier (and anyway, switching back a
forth between users: why???).
I would very much like both to be resolved.
