[Samba] strange Samba - NT4 domain connectivity problem.

Not sure. Normally I run 'killall -HUP smbd nmbd' or /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
restart on slackware boxes.
I'm fairly certain that nmbd and smbd are both running after running
either of the above commands, at least 'ps' says they're running :)
I've configured up another WINS box in our NT4 domain and will see if
the additional (secondary) WINS fixes our problem.
I have also added the IP to the wins server statement in my smb.conf:
wins server = 192.168.3.12 192.168.3.7
Thanks for the help.
