run smbclient -NL <hostname>.  But if workgroup is set to any other names
then both my server and workgroup name will disappear from the Server and
Workgroup lists.

The share directories' names will still show up in the Sharename list
regardless of what I've set the workgroup name to.  Furthermore, I've got no
problem accessing the share directories (using smbclient <samba share
