Samba 1.9.18p2 --> 1.9.18p8 on Solaris 2.6 breaks browsing ????

I upgraded from Samba 1.9.18p2 to Samba 1.9.18p8 on Solaris 2.6 and now
browsing does not work for WIN95 (haven't tried NT), nor does Network
Neighborhood even show the server.  The builds for p2 and p8 are standard,
the only difference in the user changeable portion of the makefile being
the location of the man page directory. 

I am using the same smb.conf file for both versions, and the same start up
script in /etc/rc3.d.  I can switch back and forth between the two
versions of Samba (I renamed the old root directory rather than
overwriting it), and the behavior is consistent: the old version works
while the new doesn't.

My assumption is that there is some additional configuration I must do for
p8 that was not required in p2, but have no idea what that is or where to
find it.  Or have I just done something stupid?  :-)
