Basically, our default return was 1 if it wasn't running.  The LSB says
it should be 0 for the stop-case if it's not running.  Also, there was a
bug recently reported in which stop ordering was using the start levels:

This would cause the file systems to be unmounted before Samba --
killing it uncleanly if force-unmount was used.  This is fixed in CVS.
