Actually that wasn't what was happening in your case. The WINS
server in question was responding to the name query - it was
just responding "name unknown" (ie. the tombstone). If the
server hadn't responded at all then the other WINS servers
would have been queried. So it wasn't missing data, it was
incorrect data that did you in :-).
