Not that I'm any kind of expert, but try starting nmbd with non-zero
debug levels (-d option).  Level 2 or 3 might shed some light w/out
overwhelming you w/info.  Note that 'debug level' in smb.conf doesn't
seem to work (at least, for me), you have to supply an explicit
cmd-line option.  Also, check the settings of your "syslog" variables,
to make sure the debugging output goes where you expect it.
