That's it, really.
If you change the IP address with linuxconf, it doesn't
restart nmbd, so the machine still answers nmb queries with
its old IP address.

I'm not sure how to correctly resolve this.  Should changing an IP
address automatically restart most network services?  There is not
a well-defined dependency graph for this...

There's no good way to do this.
