If I correctly remember the traces I was looking at last month, Samba and
Wind/95 have different timeout values. I *think* that there is .25
seconds between name query packets from a Wind/95 box and I *think* that
Samba uses a larger value.
I'll have to look at the traces again. It's easy to generate, though.
Just send queries (using nbtstat on Windows and nmblookup with Samba) for
a non-existent name.
