NOT using 'wins support = true' and 'wins server = ...' at the same time

at a (new) customers site i yesterday got the following when running "testparm":
- must have been a somewhat recent samba-3.6.x release (opensuse 12.3) - sorry, i'm at home now
- server role was STAND_ALONE
"ERROR: both 'wins support = true' and 'wins server = ETH0: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' cannot be set in the smb.conf file. nmbd will abort with this setting."
Btw - nmbd has not aborted ... :-(
In /etc/samba/smb.conf (no includes used at all):
wins support = true _was_ set
but _no_ 'wins server = ....' entry at all.
To also list the samba internal defaults, i used:
testparm -vs 2>&1 | grep "wins server"
and a MAGIC wins server was listed now:
wins server = ETH0: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
where interestingly enough the
was the ip of that server itself!
Adding "wins server =" to smb.conf at least removed the testparm message.
Hmm - how was that _default_ entry added?
I'm a bit tired - so could be a known glitch ...
