Freebsd 12.0-RELEASE-p10
samba 4.8.12

Recently, my machine has started going into an endless loop with the
following message rolling off the screen continuously:

    Failed to open nmb bcast socket on interface for port 137.  Error was Can't assign requested address                                          
[2019/10/21 05:46:50.980728,  0] ../source3/lib/util_sock.c:396(open_socket_in) 
  bind failed on port 137 socket_addr =                          
  Error = Can't assign requested address                                        
[2019/10/21 05:46:50.980841,  0] ../source3/nmbd/nmbd_subnetdb.c:127(make_subnet)

I am unable to regain control of the PC and am forced to do a manual
shutdown and reboot.

I have no idea how to debug this problem. I would appreciate any help
