This bug should be reopend.

Not being able to set the interfaces in the samba config files  is very

I recommend everybody to skip Ubuntu and change to Debian instead. 
This is not te way to handle Bugs reports. 

There are lots op people use the interfaces setting.

What i you have 2-4-8 Nics and only 1 should use samba.

Ive had this problem on 5 server now, and all are running fine now with
Debian Squeeze.

Ubuntu is slow compaired to debian, just the whole OS is slow, test is
your self...

  Samba non-functional on boot.

Status in “samba” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Even though nmbd and smbd are running after boot, Samba service is unavailable.
  ps axf |grep mbd
  2467 ?        Ss     0:00 smbd -F
  2469 ?        S      0:00  \_ smbd -F
  2478 ?        Ss     0:00 nmbd -D

  Samba does not allow connections from other systems and nmap from
  another system does not list ports 139 and 445 as open.

  Restarting both nmbd and smbd after boot makes Samba service available and nmap now shows ports open:
  139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
  445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
