Session Setup (AndX) on workgroup browsing

Hi there.
I wonder, why does a SMB/CIFS client need to perform a session setup
just to see the list of machines in a workgroup?
I am having some problems with tracing some CIFS code, and at least
Windows XP clients seem to try to do a session setup when just
double-clicking on the name of a workgroup (which happens to be a
domain too) in "Network Neighbourhood / Entire Network"...
