I have the same problem, and have tried this method of cleaning up
wins.dat.  Unfortunately, it wasn't very effective.  Alot of the
machines/groups don't even appear in the list.  :(

I haven't tried this, but maybe you could delete those machines from
wins.dat?  Make sure you shut down nmbd before you modify it though.
