Not sure if this is the right list, but hre goes...

It seems that the /etc/{n,s} scripts supplied in the samba package
have a small bug.

Rather than setting the {n,s}mbd_flags variable, they set variable
command_args (to have a value "-D").  Although this may make nmbd and
smbd happy, it confuses anything which gets started later on in the
startup process, like inetd and cron, since neither of those programs
understands the -D flag.
