[Samba] Found solution! (was RE: WINS querying (Advanced))

Solution to getting an IP address from a username via WINS.
Unfortunately, this incredibly simple syntax is documented nowhere. I was
only through guesswork that I found this (originally as 'nmblookup
gwebster\#03' - backslash not required inside single quotes)
It's all in the wording, of course:
querying gwebster on 10.0.255.255
This is far preferable to get an IP address from a username than trying to
parse it out from smbstatus, as the latter requires that the user in
questions has a connected share.
