  Ahh...I was unaware of the "debug ...." options.  This is certainly in
  line with the spirit of those and follows exactly the justification
  for "debug pid" (When using only one log file....hard to follow which...)

  For my purposes I'd just as soon have both the IP and Netbios name
  so a single "debug ... = yes" would be sufficient.
