I have network with several segments and several workgroups.
Most of computers runs Windows 9x, but router works under
I want to make possible cross subnet and cross workgroups
computer browsing.
I install two Samba 3.0 alpha17 on router.
They binds on different interfaces and belongs to different workdroups.
Both Sambas configured as Domain Master Borowsers and PDCs.
First Samba configured as WINS server.

When i run both Sambas, first Samba (where WINS running)
registers in in WINS as #00, #1b, #1c and #1e.
Second Samba registers only #00, #1c and #1e. But why not #1b???
This is a bug or i didn't understand something?

When clients from other workgroups try to browse computers in workgroup
controlled by Second Samba they try to find #1b but it did not exist!

When i try to configure second Samba to use its own WINS - it
registers as #00, #1b, #1c and #1e, but i don't need second WINS.
