After I switched to logging via syslog I could see in the logfiles what
was wrong. :-)

2.2.1a would allow me to use something like "nmbd -D -l /var/log/log"
(which would write to /var/log/log.nmb) whereas 2.2.2 does not allow
this.  So I just put the files elsewhere and set symbolic links to the
old places.
