[jcifs] WINS setting being ignored

I'm having trouble getting the WINS setting to work in jCIFS.  I set the 
jcifs.netbios.wins property as directed in the documentation, but it has 
no effect.  If I do jcifs.Config.getProperty("jcifs.netbios.wins") I do 
see the WINS server there, but every tcpdump I've done shows that only 
broadcast requests are being sent out.  Also, I tried setting the 
jcifs.resolveOrder property to "WINS" (no other methods), and still I 
only see broadcasts.  I've tried this with versions 0.7.19 and 0.9.2, 
and both have the same results.

Is there something that would cause jCIFS to ignore the WINS setting?
