	*sigh*  my test server's out of commission right now.  Maybe someone
else on the list can give it a shot?  It should just be a matter of browsing
the workgroup/domain in question from an NT4SP3 or NT4SP4 client, and then
quickly checking the NetBIOS cache with "nbtstat -c".  If the patch worked,
the <00> record shown for the server should have the correct IP.

	As a matter of interest, I earlier tried simply removing the special
case altogether from nmbd_packets.c, and things seem to work acceptably.
May just be because I only have a single broadcast subnet, though.
