Basically the timeout is caused by something repeatedly trying to contact an IP which cannot be resolved by ARP (44 failed ARP requests), you can see many failed arp lookups. I beleive the part which finally resolves the timeout is as follows,

> 397   0.00146 -> bbcwwp-sun29 NBT NS Query Response for CHILD1[1c], Success

No it is not something that samba do, it is the kind of address windows
client set up by itslef when they are told to find a dynamic address but
no dhcp is found.
