Thanks.  I don't have any netbios entries in smb.conf.  I'll keep that in
mind to check.  However, this morning, it just started working again.  I
now strongly suspect the problem is somebody else running some competing
server on the same subnet.  I'll have to wait until it fails again and
look for the culprit.  In the meantime, since it's working, I'm not
planning on touching it!
