Not really samba-specific, but whenever I need to track down errors like
this on any program I usually try strace to see what is missing. Something

"strace nmbd -F --debuglevel=5 --configfile=/home/test/smb.conf

The above will show you any files it is trying to open and might give a
clue why it doesn't work. If "strace" is not enough you might also try
"strace -f" to follow forked processes.
