I have been working to find out what seems to be the same problem at my 
setup. I tried the SAMBA_2_2 cvs as of 20020220, and had to revert to version 
2.2.2 to get it to work again. I first noticed that win95 (but not all of 
them) could not find the PDC - but it didn't help when I wrote static entries 
into lmhosts on the client - then I only got so far as to get the same 
log-entry as you have below. For some strange reason - setting the client to 
static IP (from dhcp) solved the problem for one client - but not another one 
I tried it with. 

I have two separate subnets here and that complicates the diagnostics.

I also got some reports of login troubles from win2000 with this version - 
but that could be a coincidence.
