SAMBA 1.9.18p2 smb.conf file

Hi Fellow SAMBA-ers

I've just attempted to upgrade from 1.9.17p5 to 1.9.18p2 on a Solaris
2.5.1 server.

1.9.17p5 is working fine, except for a few file permission problems.

>From my NT 4.0 client when I try to browse the 1.9.18p2 server, I get the
following messages in the ./var/log.nmb file

process_node_status_request: status request for name *<00> from IP
 on subnet REMOTE_BROADCAST_SUBNET - name not found.

The server is at (on a *different* subnet).  I can browse the
Samba server okay from a client on the .46. subnet, but not from the .42.

When I send a kill -HUP to the nmbd process the namelist.debug logs the

        Name = ISB012-TOKEN<00> Source = LMHOSTS_NAME
b_flags = 6     death_time = PERMANENT  refresh_time = Tue Jan 27 17:12:25 1998

                number of IPS = 1 

Does anyone have any ideas?  I was running nmbd with a -Hlmhosts flag,
but I'm more than happy to drop this if it is a bad idea.

Any help or suggestions much appreciated.
