Windows File Sharing Disabled But Still Running

Interesting. I just sat behind the iMac with the 100GB Samba log file. In the Sharing preferences panel I have ‘File Sharing’ turned on. But when I click on Options the ‘Share files and folders using SMB’ checkbox is UNCHECKED.

How can Windows File Sharing be turned off in the GUI while I still the the SMB daemons (nmbd, smbd) running???

Turning File Sharing off and on made the SMB daemons go away.

This stuff is flakey. To say the least.
