> 2) After it "has" stopped , /etc/init.d/smb status reports:

> nmbd dead but pid file exists

I opted for making some changes in /etc/init.d/smb like this:

## nmbd is ok to kill using killproc()
killproc nmbd -TERM
rm -f /var/lock/subsys/smb
## to avoid 'smbd and nmbd pid file exists' error messages
rm /var/run/smbd.pid
rm /var/run/nmbd.pid

I don't know if this will work for you,
