   You can try to backup and remove the content of /var/lib/samba/ and 
restart samba or try a dpkg-reconfigure on the main package.

   I may help, if some of the files are not re-created you can take them 
back from your backup or extract the content of the .deb package 
(dpkg-deb --extract) to find a 'clean' verion of them.

   A more radical stuff you might try is to back-up your smb.conf and 
'purge'-reinstall the package.

   I hope it'll help you, i use the same version of that package and 
don't have such problem.
