[Samba] Bind to eth1 only problem

from the man page:
bind interfaces only (G)
nmbd also binds to the "all addresses" interface ( on ports 137 
and 138 for the purposes of reading broadcast messages.

so i guess its not a bug but expected behavour...
kinda dumb, would expect to be able to bind it to a specific interface 
only. :/ as I don't care about broadcast messages on any other interfaces 
that may be present. I can see how it would be useful in some envirnments, 
but its not right for all environments, and should have a method for 
stopping it from doing that with out having to resort to some other method 
like iptables to stop the undesired behavior.
