Dear Gurus !!!

I am not an expert but i conducted some tests with the "browsing" 
features of the Samba 2.2.3a and find out some facts that look like a 
possible mistake from my part or a little bug in the Samba 2.2.3a software.

My test network was composed of 1 Samba Machine under RH7.2 Linux, 1x 
W98 client and 1x Win/Me client.

I made 72 tests varying the following options:

local master
domain master
prefered master
wins support

The domains logon feature was activated in the global section of my 

The results of my tests was that every time my Samba machine was the LMB 
it was impossible to browse network using the network neighborhood (or 
My Network Places in Win/Me) icon on the clients. I also verify that 
other guy is having exactly the some problem.

Is it a bug already fixed or not ?
