[Samba] nmbd dead but pid file exists

On a CentOS 5.1 server samba works perfectly as long as connections exist.  If 
no connections exist nmbd shuts down:

service smb status
smbd (pid 2970 2934) is running...
nmbd dead but pid file exists

On this last occasion it had been less than 5 minutes between connections.

What could be causing this?
