Back on 10/15/06 I posted about an issue - titled:
"nmbd problems with secondary lo".
No responses were received.

It's not the same problem you have but they might be related.

The workaround I posted then was to use an IP address in place of an interface 
name. You might want to try that.
interfaces =,
bind interfaces only = Yes
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
