Hi all,

I don't make it a point to answer my own posts, but I thought this
information would be useful:

In researching the problem our client was having below, I found that there
were two NT servers on the same subnet as my Unix server running Samba. Both
these NT servers were "arguing" over who was the master browser for that
network segment. Once the NT SysAdmin corrected the problem and assigned one
of the servers as the master browser, the problem went away.

Hopefully this post will save someone else some time and effort.
