Hi Jeremy,

i tested your last patch, but it did NOT work too. sorry.

i've upgraded all DMB's with it, removed browse.dat and started all DMB's.
the same as above, the browse.dat is recreated and conatins entries with 
trailing spaces for the domains the DMB is NOT the master.

i will send you my smb.conf files in another mail directly.

thanks for your help
