Server comment length problem not new to 2.0!

Someone mentioned yesterday that they'd discovered that if the
"server comment" string was over a certain length, the Samba
server disappeared from browse lists.
That rang a bell. Our division was renamed recently, and the
new name is longer than the old one. I'd changed the server
comment to reflect the change.
A few days later, I noticed that the machine was no longer
appearing in browse lists. I didn't put the two together
until last night. So I shortened the comment, and it's
back in the browse list for the domain it's in.
I'm still running 1.9.18p10, so this one's been around for a while!
