Just a silly idea don't know even if it works: If you are in control of the
link how about messing with the wins.dat file? When the link gets up you
exchange/merge wins.dat files from both servers and restart nmbds... For
example all machines in one net are called with a distinctive a_ in name so
you grep in b network in the wins.dat file and replace all a_ entries with
the new ones. Same for the other wins.dat for hosts named b_whatever.
