Browsing Problems (Vanishing PCs & Workgroups from NetHood)

PCs keep disappearing from one of our workgroups (SYS-STAFF) and PCs in
frequently cannot see other workgroups. PCs in other workgroups are
unable to browse SYS-STAFF, even though TCP/IP connectivity works fine
all the time.
I've got Samba 2.0.5a running under Solaris 2.7 which is configured to
be browse master
for SYS-STAFF. Samba is running on a very lightly loaded Sun Ultra 10.
Excerpt from my smb.conf:
os level = 65
domain master = no
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logons = no
When nmbd is restarted it reports that it is the Master Browser for
but then nmbd frequently reports it cannot contact browse master for
a few hours later.
Sometimes an entry like this occurs ( from a Linux box running Samba
>[1999/09/03 18:32:34, 1] nmbd/nmbd_incomingdgrams.c:process_reset_browser(710)
> process_reset_browser: received diagnostic browser reset request from RWHLTPC<00> IP > >>18.104.22.168 state=0x2
I've stopped samba on this machine pro tem.
Any ideas? I'm getting a bit desperate :(
