You might try something like this:

Rename your smb.conf to smb.conf.global, delete "interfaces = xxx".

Create a new smb.conf like this:

      interfaces = xxx
      include = /path/to/your/smb.conf.global

Now start nmbd with "-s /path/to/your/smb.conf.global".

This will prevent nmbd from seeing your interfaces configuration.
