[Samba] Samba 3.0.28a does not listen on UDP ports

One of my SAMBA servers seems to be unable to be accessed by my last
few Win98 clients since its auto-update installed a new kernel and
enticed me into rebooting it. After some searching, I discovered
that it is not listening on UDP ports 137 and 138 like it used to.

The Fedora 8 auto-update installed samba 3.0.28a a few weeks ago,
and this may in fact be the first samba restart since then.

Has there been any change in defaults ?

I tried adding "disable netbios = no" to smb.conf, but this did
not change the behaviour. Is that the setting that one would
change if one wanted to remove UDP service in favor of TCP-only ?
