I don't have much experience with samba's nmbd, but here's my recommendation:
Whenever you have _any_ type of _server_ program or daemon that fails to run,
you can usually find clues as to why by looking in the system log or other log
files generated by the program in question. I'd bet that if you don't find
anything in /var/log/syslog, you'll find a file named /var/log/nmbd* that will
have info that may help you find out why the program is failing. Also,
because of your description of the problem (works fine for ~3 weeks, then
fails), I'd highly recommend comparing the log file entries from the times
that it did work with the entries from the time it didn't.
