Yes I am having a similar problem. However I have not found the RIGHT 
solution yet.

My problem seems to be steming from WINS. Are you using WINS? If so try 
diabling it and restarting.
Or another thing to try is to use LMHOSTS or hosts file name resolution.

Let me know if you find any realy fixes for this.
