How would you know that the smbd you see is Samba-3?

Get rid of the version-mix. Why would you want to have it that way?

Be sure that there are only Samba-3-binaries on that host, or at least
in your PATH and start-scripts.

Then watch your logs for anything looking out of way.
Tuning the socket options is a thing you can do after basic operation
is up and running smooth.

Samba-3 is able to be fast, VERY fast, so go and get it.
