From your first post:

It looks like you have 2 nic's on the same subnet but not bonded or you would 
not have 2 different IP addresses and the interface would be called bond0. 
This scenario - 2 nics on the same subnet, AFAIK, will generally not work.

Once you bond them there will only be one IP address for the bonded interface 
bond0. You will need to pick a proper bonding mode for your needs and switch 
configuration (see bonding.txt in your kernel source documentation).

Also try:

smb ports = 139

in the global section of your smb.conf file.
