not a lot.  reduction in work done by nmbd, as it won't be listening on 
that NetBIOS name.

we don't have a bug, as such.  more a "blurring" of the roles of 
"potential master browser" and "non-master browser".

it's not documented properly either.

janne, can i ask you if you could do a netstat -a m/c_name on one of 
those machines where the registry has been edited to _not_ ever become a 
local master?

i need to know if WORKGROUP<1e> is registered or not on that machine.
