Error registering DOMAINNAME<1b> with 1.9.18p4 WINS server

Greetings again...

Not sure what to think about this one...

I'm running the 2.0 prealpha code downloaded via CVS on August 26
running on Solaris 2.5.1(sparc)

Here's the log message

[1998/09/08 16:30:24, 0]
  become_domain_master_query_fail: Error 0 returned when querying 
  WINS server for name ENG-NT<1b>.

Also seeing

find_response_record: response packet id 6316 received with no matching
find_subnet_for_nmb_packet: response record not found for response id

packet id <6316> appears to be the request that is timing out.

I've done some debugging and it seems to be timeing out when trying to 
register the DOMAINNAME<1b> record with the 1.9.18p4 WINS server.

The catch is that it will only fail to register this name if the WINS
server is on the same subnet.  If the WINS erver is on another subnet,
everything goes as planned. Does this sound familar to anyone?  Not 
sure I quite understand the behavior here.

I gone through the code and looked at backtraces of the call stack 
during execution and can't seem to get why it's doing this.  

Could someone enlightne me a little?  I can provide as much or 
as little information as you want.  I'll keep looking in the 

Thanks again,
