SWAT (eroneously) reports smbd/nmbd not working

Here's a possibility. We noticed this here at work, and our problem was
that localhost (127.0.0.1) was not in the list of interfaces (since we
have more than one.. For example: )
interfaces = 192.168.1.1/16 127.0.0.1
This seemed to allow swat to "see" if smbd and nmbd are running. If you
look in the source under source/web/diagnose.c at the functions
smbd_running and nmbd_running, you will see that the functions try to
connect to the localhost address to query the server daemons.
Hope this helps!
