Right - I don't get these lines. How can I see what's choking smb?

I have looked in /var/log/samba and most are empty. 
There is something odd in log.nmbd.1.gz:

[2007/03/13 12:56:45, 0] param/loadparm.c:map_parameter(2649)
  Unknown parameter encountered: "iterfaces"

Which continues in that fashion for a while. Seems there may be a spelling 
error in the c code itself. I dunno. I checked the smb.conf and it does not 
contain "iterfaces" anywhere.

I get no obvious errors when I start samba.

I am pretty sure I have no firewall running. I have been trying to learn 
iptables and all I have at the moment is a masquerade through to the XP box 
for sharing the net. My Kubuntu box has two network cards.
