Obviously not a common error then! I have found that clicking "Start
smbd" tries to start another smbd, but fails. This appears in the log:
ERROR: smbd is already running. File /var/run/samba/smbd.pid exists and
process id 28315 is running.
Is there any way I can point swat to the right pid (or however it gets
the status of the services)?
