Hmmm...  I just did a CVS update today and I now notice that the file
./packaging/RedHat/findsmb is different than the one I checked out a week ago.
However, the bug remains, even in today's version.  I have a Win98 host called
"WINBLOWS 98" and today's findsmb displays only "WINBLOWS".  With the supplied
patch, findsmb displays the full host name (both words).

I don't know what the fix was that Simo had done.  I guess it was unrelated.
