What is in your smb script?
What does smbstatus show?
What happens when you forget the fancy startup script and just use:
Here is all I use to start my daemons:
case "$1" in
kill -SIGHUP `cat /usr/local/samba/var/locks/smbd.pid`
kill -SIGHUP `cat /usr/local/samba/var/locks/nmbd.pid`
echo start stop reload
