[Samba] Strange WINS entries with samba 3.07 running as PDC

I have following smb.conf:
hosts deny = all
hosts allow = 192.168.x.0/32 127.0.0.1/32
name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast
interfaces = 192.168.x.y/32 127.0.0.1/32
socket address = 192.168.x.y
bind interfaces only = yes
disable netbios = yes
remote browse sync = 192.168.x.255
remote annouance = 192.168.x.255
wins support = yes
Nmbd.log shows strange entries like:
__SAMBA__<20> TTL = PERMANENT 192.168.x.y 44.x.y.0 64
If samba is restarted, entries change but they point usually to
44.-networks. This is very annoying since I have nothing to do
with those 44.x.y.z
I wonder where those 44.x.y.0 entries come from?
I have captured network taffic with Ethereal, but there isn't
traffic going to or coming from 44.-networks.
Even if whole network connection is disconnected (ethernet cable
disconnected) those entries are shown and they change if samba
If I remove 127.0.0.1/32 (my localhost) from interfaces,
entries vanish but samba doesn't function correctly after that.
My clients are connected via VPN-tunnels to the server.
192.168.x.y is eth0:1. Maybe I should try to assign own network
card to this. Interface eth0 is my VPN endpoint with public IP
Samba 3.07 is running at Fedora Core 1 server.
Samba rpms are downloaded from download.redhat.fedora.com and
I have verified samba files with rpm --verify and they are OK.
