I posted a couple of times about a problem I was having with browsing, 
where smbclient (and other clients) showed nothing in the browse list, 
but wins.dat and browse.dat showed a list and the log showed the server 
becoming the domain and local master browser.

Well, the problem turned out to be permissions on the .../samba/var and 
.../samba/var/locks directories; not allowing the 'guest account' access 
to the files.  D'oh!

I thought I just post to let you know the solution (so hopefully someone 
won't be as dumb as me in future ;-).
