Dropping smb.conf gives the following:
[2011/03/04 14:27:13.780496, 1] ../lib/util/params.c:513(OpenConfFile)
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf":
No such file or directory
And then, nmbd doesn't start nor does smbd.
So, in short, samba doesn't start of smb.conf is missing. Still, it
*does* when smb.conf is empty..:-)
*that* could be considered to be a bug, after all.
