1.9.17p2/3 causing Windows95 network access hangs

Problems with Samba 1.9.17p2/3.

Scenario: Linux 2.0.29 with Samba 1.9.17alpha5 with Domain logins
and Wins services to a single PC.

Under alpha5 I have no problems at all logging into the domain 
and accessing server resources.

I upgrade to 1.9.17p2/3 by killing the alpha5 daemons and starting 
the 1.9.17p2/3 daemons and I can still access all my resources 
(no problems evident.) After restarting the Windows95 PC, I still
have no problems. But if I turn the Windows95 PC off and come back
in the morning - Domain login is slow but works, checks the profile
ok (I think.) But when I access the Network Neighbourhood or put in
\\server\resource name the Windows95 PC just sits there.

I have looked in the log files and it looks like the access to the
server and wins lookups are being performed, but I am at a loss to
why the hang on the PC side hangs.
