Testing against an older version of Samba, this doesn't appear to be the
way things work. I would like to test against a Windows box, but I don't
have one that will do the job just now. The older version of Samba that
I run on a machine in the basement returns RA TRUE even if the name is
from the local name table.
I really would like to see what W/NT and/or W2K do...
Richard's fixes should make that easier.
