I've just fixed this bug. It was a problem in the WACK code (wait for 
acknowledgement) in nmbd. These get produced when two machines try to
register the same name on the network. It could also happen if one
machine shutdown suddenly then the same user logged in again on
another machine.

It will be fixed in the next release. Unfortunately I didn't find the fix
in time for the 1.9.17p3 release.
