[Samba] Trouble killing NMBD Processes

Greetings all.  I installed samba 2.2.5 from source, and I am using the Red 
Hat init script to start the Daemons.  The NMBD starts two processes (I have 
enabled the name server wins support = yes).  when I attempt to kill the 
daemons smbd kills successfully, but nmbd first says no such process, but it 
kills one.  After attempting to kill again, the second process dies.  In the 
init script I added another killproc nmbd which does the job, but I do not 
think it should be this way.  When I installed from rpm in the past, I never 
noticed this issue.

Any of you gurus have a thought on this?

Thank you for your help,
