I can produce something in addition. 
Bevore upgrade to squeeze i could bind samba to an openvpn tun device 
after upgrade nmdb cant even start 

[2011/03/03 06:37:29.641278, 2] lib/interface.c:340(add_interface) 
added interface /255.2 ip= bcast= 172.16.10 .255 netmask= 

[2011/03/03 06:37:29.641336, 0] lib/util_sock.c:880(open_socket_in) 
bind failed on port 137 socket_addr = 
ERROR: Failed when creating subnet lists. Exiting. 

(why it trys to bind to the broadcast adress hmm) 

however wen i set the netmask wrong it starts but cant find the interface anymore but it starts at least 

so i tried without specifiing an interface and bind it to all 

result is that it binds only to non dynamical interface which are in /etc/network/interfaces 
all otherinterfaces (bridges and openvpn tuns) are simply not found at all 

funny thing is smb can bind to all (it also binds fine to my 172.16.10 /249) 
and apear in the netstat while nmdb does in no case ever bind to those interfaces 

this is a bit of an real problem - i need the wins support cause most users dont even know what an ip is :-)
