[Samba] An OK too much when starting smb service

Hi, I've got a question, mostly out of curiosity, because my Mandrake 
Linux 9.0 + Samba 2.2.8a is actually working fine.

Whenever I (re)start Samba by issuing "service smb start", I get the 
following output:

[root at localhost marco]# service smb start
Avvio servizi SMB:                                            [   OK   ]
Avvio servizi NMB:                                            [   OK   ]
[root at localhost marco]#                                       [   OK   ]

The first two "OK"s are fine, but what is the 3rd one related to? What's 
more, it doesn't appear immediately; it appears one minute (or so) after 
I started the service. And, as you can see from the output, it does not 
"take a line on its own", it is just overwritten on the current shell 

Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks.
