Sorry, I have no experience with nClinux. In general, I
would strongly recommend using Samba on a CPU with proper
memory protection, running without a MMU seems a bit risky
to me.

The way I would attack this is to run

strace -f -o smbd.trace smbd -D

and analyze smbd.strace the socket calls like socket(),
bind() and listen() for spurious errors.
