It's probably worth seeing then if we can get "reset on zero vc = no"
added to the default smb.conf.template.  It might also be worth
pointing out the changes needed for multiple routers too, since only
one can be the WINS server (secondary routers have "wins support=no"
and "wins server=172.30.x.x" in smb.conf.template, and
/etc/config/dhcp entries use "44,172.30.x.x" instead of "44,").

I also have a patch to luci-app-samba that allows you to set the
listening interfaces via the UI:

Unfortunately, I expect Gmail will mangle the lines in that patch, but
it should be easy enough to fix.  The CeroWRT version of the file is
at /usr/lib/lua/luci/model/cbi/samba.lua if anyone wants to try adding
this manually.  For this to have any effect on Samba, you will need to
restore/uncomment the original "interfaces = |INTERFACES|" line in
smb.conf.template that my previous template set manually.
