[Samba] Odd WINS behaviour when client is connected to VPN

	We have just installed Samba 3.0.0b3-1 as a PDC running against 
LDAP with WINS server enabled, and have noticed something odd... When a 
client machine (which is not on the domain, but does get WINS server 
information via DHCP) connects to a remote VPN, all the remote domains 
from the other side of the VPN connection become browseable (but empty).

	This isn't so much of a security issue as an odd annoyance, but if 
someone could shed some light on what's going on that would be great!
