[Samba] can't browse network after changing networks

I seem to have a recurring problem with browsing the network.
I set up a file server in my workshop. It is mostly installed using a
apt-proxy i have installed here.  When i first install i use DHCP.
Before i take the computer on-site i change the ip address to what it
will use when installed into the clients office.
The logs show that it is a master browser on the right subnet.
I can access computers through the find computer search in win clients.
But i get a message "unable to browse network" when trying to browse.
The clients are not using any other protocol.

If i stop Samba the clients are able to see each other.
The version i am using is  2.2.3a-6.
On previous versions i was able to completely uninstall and reinstall
and this would solve the problem but since using woody this doesn't seem
to work at all.
My theory is when Debian is installed it creates some files somewhere
with current configuration settings and after i change the subnet these
setting stay the same.
