I know this sounds like a typical name resolution problem, but
that is something it certainly isn't. here are the facts:
the principles:
server: samba 2.2.8a on netbsd 1.6.1
client: XP Pro Japanese

what works:
1. netbios resolves 
2. net use \\<ip address> and start->run:\\<ip addr> always works fine
3. net use \\<netbios name> /user:<account> works fine and all
   subsequent connects using the <netbios name> are golden.

what doesn't work:
1. start->run: \\<netbios name> 

what is in the logs:
[2003/08/14 15:02:58, 3]

	/usr/pkgsrc/net/samba/work/samba-2.2.8a/source/smbd/server.c:exit_server(511) Closing connections

It looks to me like the client isn't sending a username. I
really don't have any idea what I should be looking for here.
