I'd realised that. I'm not exactly a newcomer to unix/samba :)

netstat was originally (I thought) showing nothing listening on
0.0.0.0. Reading the man page I realise this can't be right, since
nmbd needs to listen there for broadcast traffic. It's currently
showing a listener on 0.0.0.0. Tweaking socket address, interfaces,
and bind interfaces only doesn't appear to change this, but as I said
that's what I'd expect having read through the manual page. I'm just
suffering from some sort of delusion that I managed to switch the
service off at some point.

No, the whole point of my setup is to try and configure any services
on the machine to be safe in the absence of a firewall. If I don't
have a listener on a given interface, then it doesn't matter if the
firewall is working or not, you can't get any information from that
interface for whatever service you're looking for.
