The MB (Master Browser) is elected, and the elected computer is MB until one
of the others starts a new election. With win31 is happened to me, that
after the samba-server won, one of the client immediatly started a new
election. Under win3.11 this can be stopped by setting 
MaintainServerList = NO
LMAnnounce = NO
in the system.ini's network section

Under win95, there are similary setting somewhere in the registry.
