I opted for making some changes in /etc/init.d/smb like this:

         ## nmbd is ok to kill using killproc()
         killproc nmbd -TERM
         rm -f /var/lock/subsys/smb
         ## to avoid 'smbd and nmbd pid file exists' error messages
         rm /var/run/smbd.pid
         rm /var/run/nmbd.pid

I don't know if this will work for you,
