You are being very polite on what I would consider a BUG !!!!!!!
There has been another bloke on this list that has been very "strong"
on this also.
IMHO .... The name resolve order stuff has been a fairly recent incarnation,
and I suspect that the chaps have not found all of original calls
in the code.............
This might explain why clicking on a share in windoze explorer
takes a "long" time to crank up smbd. Might be cause it is
attempting to find the share name on a non-existant DNS
