[Samba] WINS not updating after swapping network connections

Our domain controller is running Samba 2.2.8a on Solaris 8.
We have XP laptops. We swap between a builtin network card, docking port and
wireless card. All of these have separate IP addresses.
If I say, boot up with the wireless card, then remove it and use the builtin
network card, the IP address in wins.dat on the server doesn't change. It
still has the IP address of the wireless card. It means you can't browse this
machine. Our backup software (BackupPC) also stops working.
Should wins.dat not get updated when a machine changes IP address?
Below is part of our smb.conf file:
