I always see exactly two smbd processes (via ps -x), regardless of the number of client machines actively accessing files on my samba share.  From what I've read, there should be a new smbd process per connection?  I'm trying to use the truss command to trace system calls made by samba, so need to find the process id.

This is Samba 3.6.9   on FreeBSD 9.1,
