Nmblookup trouble

Some time ago, I wrote a small script based on some information on one
of the Samba lists, which let me figure out which machine a user was
logged in on. The script was this:-

# smbfind: watch for someone to log in


case $# in
0)      echo 'Usage: smbfind <nt_login>' 1>&2; exit 1

nmblookup -S "${1}#03" | awk '/<00> -  /{print $1}'

This has recently stopped working, and I'm at a loss as to why - node
status queries seem to simply fail on my network these days. I'm using
Samba 2.0.7, and I've no idea what changed to stop the script from
working. I'd appreciate any ideas...
