nmbd daemon repeatedly fails

I took this position as the Systems Admin of a multiplatform network (Apple & Windows).  I have an Apple XServe OSX 10.4.11.  It is acting as the PDC for a mostly windows environment.  For the most part it is working quite nicely and doing all that one would expect.  Unfortunately after a hard drive failure and with that a software raid (mirroring of the boot drive) that was preconfigured the server had to be rebuilt.  
The consultant who built the server came out as he was expected to and rebuilt what he constructed.  Ever sense then, the NMBD daemon has this unhealthy habit of crashing at of course the most infrequent of times.  Either in the middle of the day or in the middle of the night.  I have program set to monitor and restart the daemon but this is just a band aid.  I would like a final solution as the Consultant is no longer in the picture and this is frustrating having to constantly watch and monitor something that should in theory run without issues.
The only message i get from the log is this:


[2008/06/20 01:30:16, 2] /SourceCache/samba/samba-100.11/samba/source/nmbd/nmbd_synclists.c:sync_browse_lists(169)
  Initiating browse sync for GENSONA to CUSTSERV2(0.0.0.0)
[2008/06/20 01:30:16, 2] /SourceCache/samba/samba-100.11/samba/source/nmbd/nmbd_synclists.c:complete_sync(283)
  sync with CUSTSERV2(0.0.0.0) for workgroup GENSONA completed (3 records)
[2008/06/20 01:32:13, 0] /SourceCache/samba/samba-100.11/samba/source/nmbd/nmbd.c:terminate(56)
  Got SIGTERM: going down...

nothing telling me there is anything wrong.  This is generally how it always is when it goes down.  Any ideas?
