Fortunately I found the log. Here it is:

[2002/10/01 11:40:51, 0] /samba-2.2.3a/source/./nmbd/nmbd.c:main(783)
  Netbios nameserver version 2.2.3a started.

  ERROR: Failed when creating subnet lists. Exiting.

I entered an interfaces=eth0 statement in the global section of smb.conf and restarted both daemons (smbd and nmbd), but this did not help.  Testparm reflects this change and one other to the log file name format. Curiously, the old log file name still captures the updates.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
