Nope, I don't have one there either.  There's no wins.dat file anywhere.
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!
