Try to add "static mappings" for these machines.

> # nmblookup -U moritz -R hni-gate
> querying hni-gate on
> name_query failed to find name hni-gate
> I then just have to stop and start the nmbd on the samba server and 
> everything is fine again.
> This happens about every two weeks or so. Has anybody experienced 
> anything similar and has an idea about how to stop it?
