Well, /etc/hosts is still the same as before updating to 3.0.21c with in it. After some try and error I added the line

    socket address =, 192.168.x.x

to my smb.conf. Now I have NMBD bound to and SWAT shows the correct 
status. The only thing I'd like to know now is if this is a security issue. 
I have my linux server behind a router firewall so I think this should keep 
NMBD invisible to the internet. But I'm not quite sure about that.
