Original message, under answer.

Thank you to
Matthew Gillard, Kelly Ormsby, Alex Stade, Pablo Jejcic and Doug Hubbard for

I commented out the following entries from /etc/inetd.conf
netbios-ssn  stream  tcp   nowait  /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd   smbd
netbios-ns   dgram   udp   wait    /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbs   nmbd

Then I kill -HUP <inetd pid>

The errors went away.

Oh, and I'm running Samba as a Daemon (smbd -D) from now on too.
