lock directory / wins

last weekend I switched our production environment from s3 to s4 beta8. And it
runs really good during the last two days. Good work and many thanks!
Today I saw two things, where I need a bit help:
1.) I copy/pasted "lock directory = /usr/var/locks/" to my new smb.conf after
migration, what was not wanted. This was the s3 lock directory. Now it is
mixed up with the new files. Can I just remove the "lock directory" parameter
from smb.conf? But where are this files located normally, so I can move them?
Or are this just temporary databases that can be lost?
This are the files in /usr/var/locks/ that changed since saturday morning
(where I made the switch from s3):
2.) Network neighborhood is on most workstations empty or showing just 1-5
computers. The old s3 server was a wins server. When I migrated to s4, I setup
the browsing functions on an s3 member server:
local master = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins host bcast
But when I start nmbd on this s3 machine, log.nmbd shows "There is already a
domain master browser at IP 192.168.29.2 for workgroup MUC registered on
subnet 192.168.29.4." (192.168.29.2 is the host I switched to s4 and doesn't
run nmbd). I also removed wins.* from the s3 lock directory and restarted. But
this message always is logged and the network neighborhood stays almost empty.
