Hmm. Ignoring everything else you gave us, I'd say it sounds like there is a firewall in the way. I've had the exact same problem before.
I believe I have ipfw disabled..
# ps -ax|grep ipfw #
I start it up by doing
# /usr/local/sbin/smbd -D ; /usr/local/sbin/nmbd -D
and then only find nmbd running.. is that normal behavior?
Also even after killing nmbd it comes back seemingly on its own.
Sorry if I'm rambling on but I seem to be lost.
Maybe I should instead try to copy the cups and samba execs in rc.d from their defaults and do a shutdown.
