One of my users is reporting that his Samba configuration is behaving
differently now that I've upgraded to 3.0.0rc3. He is using nmbd -n
to set the netbios name of the machine. With samba-2.2.x, this worked
as he expected, and the machine name seen when browsing from Windows
clients whas the name he set with -n. With 3.0.0rc3, the machine name
reverts to the hostname of the machine. Using "netbios name = " in
the smb.conf file works as expected with 3.0.0rc3.
