'Resource temporarily unavailable' with 2.0.7 under FBSD 4.0R

As far as I know, nmblookup doesn't use the smb.conf file to figure out
how to resolve, you have to tell it manually.
Try doing a nmblookup -U <WINS Server> -R <NetBIOS name>

If you want to make sure nmbd is resolving names the right way, you have
to bump up the log level.  I think running ./nmbd -d 5 is right, and I
think (by looking at the source, I havn't tested this,) you should be
looking for a line like:
query_name_response: On subnet %s - positive response from IP %s for name
%s. IP of that name is %s

Hope this helps.  Don't know about your resource problem, though.  Can you
do things like telnet localhost? (ie, normal loopback communcations work?)

Also, even with the 'wins server' line and 'name resolve order' set to use
wins only, nmblookup still says:

pbssamba:/usr/local/etc> nmblookup pdx-james
querying pdx-james on pdx-james<00>

This appears to indicate that nmblookup is querying on the broadcast
rather than using the wins server.  How can I get nmbd to talk to the WINS 
server instead of broadcasting?
