we are noting a strange behavior sniffing the traffic on a windows network, 
while studying samba. Using win2000, when the computer starts, it sends 
across the network not only the computer name (we are using a workgroup, no 
domain) but also the username once the login is done. Instead, the wixp 
machine sends only the machine name. We are not trying to log in a domain, 
and there are no network volumes mounted or accessed with a user type 
security. Is there simply a difference between the two implementations, or 
there's something that we don't know?
