Still wondering about odd ports open.

I've asked about this before It's just got me wondering.
TCP/138 has no defined behavior under NBT, and group name replies on
TCP/137 are seldom--if ever--implemented even though it is in the RFCs.
With this in mind, consider the exchange below:
Windows 95. [Version 4.00.1111]
C:> netstat -a
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State
TCP paris:137 PARIS:0 LISTENING
TCP paris:138 PARIS:0 LISTENING
TCP paris:nbsession PARIS:0 LISTENING
UDP paris:nbname *:*
UDP paris:nbdatagram *:*
It's those first two TCP lines that get me wondering. What are they
*doing* on those ports?
