Hmm. Good idea. But didn't do the trick, but meanwhile I'd also upgraded to
smbd version 3.0.33-3.28.el5 - which wasn't working any better really.
Except now finally there's an error message, a clue!

May 25 16:40:05 xyz smbd[4092]: [2010/05/25 16:40:05, 0] lib/messages.c:message_init(132) 
May 25 16:40:05 xyz smbd[4092]:   ERROR: Failed to initialise messages database 

That error doesn't occur with "smbd -D" though. Off to Google it....
