[Samba] Unable to browse workgroup, shares otherwise accessible

After upgrading from Mandrake Linux 9.2 to Mandrake Linux 10 I can no longer
browse my workgroup domain in "My Network Places" from my XP Pro clients.
However, I can still access the shares on my Samba server without problem
using either "Add Network Place" or by entering the path directly in
Explorer. Another symptom is found in my Samba log where a lot of the
following messages are being produced:


[2004/04/24 22:18:13, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(627)

  Can't become connected user!


Everything worked perfectly prior to the upgrade, and currently everything
besides the workgroup browsing issue still works. I am not a Samba expert,
and I searched the net without any decisive results, so I would really
appreciate if someone could help me out here. Below you will find essential
smb.conf data. Samba version is 3.0.2a.
