I must have missed explaining the bit about the wildcard name early on.
Either that or I had it wrong early on and messed things up.
I do have it in correctly my docs, though (Section 22.214.171.124). Check a
trace of either nbtstat or nmblookup doing an NODE STATUS REQUEST. If you
use the -A option with either of these tools you will see that it uses the
wildcard address. If you use 'nbtstat -a <name>' or 'nmblookup -S <name>'
then the given <name> will be used.
Empirically, most Windows boxes *do* register the <00>, so that typically
works. XP caught me by surprise as well.
