[Samba] nmbd woes (still)

I share your pain.
I've been playing with this very thing and have just joined the list. I too
have been bashing my head against the wall.
I've been trying to get static mappings to work for quite a while and
finally after much annoyance I've got
wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins dns lmhosts hosts
dns proxy = yes
then start chucking entries into /etc/hosts and voila it starts to resolve
these static mappings..
here's what I also figured out (whether it's a bug or not). nmbd WINS
doesn't like having complicated addressing.:
1. server. 10.160.0.170
test client. 126.96.36.199 - gw 188.8.131.52
10.160.0.50 - WINS 10.160.0.170
ie secondary address on a winxp machine is the one pointing directory to
wins. this fails to resolve anything sometimes and other times it does a
few and drops. as soon as i simplify my IP addressing on the client
ie 10.160.0.50 only it works a treat.
I've been trying to replace a MS WINS server with a samba one and so far the
microsoft one has been far less pain.
anyway, this probably won't help your problem, but i felt like a rant...
(also i only got this message just then, no history)....

I've decided that my nmbd must just be "broken". I configured smbd to be a
wins servier and I can do everything. The only thing is my samba server
still doesn't appear in the workgroup list.
