[Samba] nmbd won't ignore an interface

This is a config issue, at least I hope so. I have a wbel v3 box (same
as rhel v3 box) with 2 nics and it acts as both my firewall and my samba
eth0: WAN (dhclient to my cable modem provider)
eth1: LAN (dhcpd for my private network)
The relevant part of my /etc/samba/smb.conf looks like this...
interfaces = eth1 lo
bind interfaces only = yes
os level = 99
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
netbios name = WBEL
wins support = yes
The problem is, nmbd is listening/chatting to eth0 (currently it's IP
18.104.22.168) about every 5 seconds and then flooding my logs with
entries like this...
Apr 18 14:57:31 wbel nmbd: [2005/04/18 14:57:31, 0]
Apr 18 14:57:31 wbel nmbd: become_domain_master_query_success:
Apr 18 14:57:31 wbel nmbd: There is already a domain master
browser at IP 22.214.171.124 for workgroup HOME registered on subnet
Some info about the software I'm running...
[root at wbel tmp]# uname -a
Linux wbel.bwo1.com 2.4.21-27.0.2.EL #1 Wed Jan 19 17:00:12 EST 2005
i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
[root at wbel tmp]# rpm -qa | egrep "(smb|samba)"
And the question is... How do I configure nmbd to completely ignore
eth0? I don't like that it listens to that nic. Maybe it's not a
security issue, but why waist my resources logging things that I don't
need or want.
Thanks in advance
