OK I've been working at this a bit more and have come up with some
- Only cache the #1b and #1c names for a very short period of time
(say 10 seconds) as these names can change quickly especially if
they are stored on a WINS server.
- If a cli_connect() fails to a name, clear the cache entry for that
name. We don't want to have multiple tries connecting to a cached
name that doesn't work.
