It seems to me at least the NMBD crashes all time time.  In my
log.nmbd file I see the following..

[2003/08/25 08:52:03, 1]

Anyone have any ideas, this is a definite show stopper for me. I also
found that when I do a "service smb stop" under /var/run/samba there
still exists smbd.pid and nmbd.pid so if I restart smb it dies again
because it thinks its already running..

Can anyone point me in the right direction on what I can do to fix
