[Samba] cannot start smbd on AIX 5.3

Help please.

I am in the process of configuring Samba 3.0.14a onto 4 AIX 5.3 systems.
It seems to be working OK on 3 of the 4, but on the last one, I cannot
start smbd.

nmbd seems to start fine.
The smb.conf file matches the other servers except that the server name
is changed.

Here's the error showing up on the log.smbd file.

[2007/05/02 15:19:47, 0] smbd/server.c:main(835)
  standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option
[2007/05/02 15:19:47, 0] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_in(708)
  bind failed on port 139 socket_addr =
  Error = Address already in use

I'm hoping someone with network experience has seen this kind of error
and can point me in the right direction to resolve.
I did a "netstat -a | grep 139" but didn't see anything using port 139.
