As soon as I start up the daemons using the following commands, nmbd dies.

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D
/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D

When I view the nmbd.log it gives the following.  We're trying to set up 
Samba to work over 2 subnets.  Smbd is ok and we can still mount our 
shares.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks for any help.
