[Samba] nmbd dies regularly, no log files

My nmbd dies every single day. For some reason, samba is no longer 
logging to log.smbd and log.nmbd, so I have no clue why this is 
happening. All client connections are logged - i.e. log.machinename

Info - samba 2.2.7a (though this has happened since 2.2.5)
Linux RH7.3, kernel 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp (also happened with earlier kernels)

my smb.conf reads: 

# log file options
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 500
log level = 1

The machine is a domain member, and looks to a W2K WINS server for lookups.
