[Samba] different announces between w2k and xp

as I wrote in a previous e-mail, we are noting different announcing between a 
w2k computer and an xp one (both professional). The computers are not trying 
to log on a windows domain, and this time I can provide also a dump of 
traffic thru ethereal. As you can see from the attached files, the win2k 
computer sends also the username (marty) along the network, and we cannot 
understand why. Is just a problem of a different implementation of the SMB 
stacks among different operating systems, or there's a specific reason for 
this behavior?
