Samba security problem?

Hi! I spent the whole day configuring Samba. It's now running and I can access the shares from Windows98 and 2000/XP. Just one thing made me think. When I began configuring and someone was accessing the shares from the network, "px -aux" showed that "nobody" is running "smbd -D". I didn't notice that this changed until now when I saw that now "root" is running the "smbd -D" processes that are created when someone is accessing the shares.

I just can't figure out what caused this because I made so many configuration changes in the last few hours.

Just wanna know if this is ok or is it a security problem?
