Yup, been meaning to research that a bit more. It happens when you bounce Samba but then do not bounce the workstations. Printer attachments also end up with it saying "on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" which makes 
setting the default pritner via "\\server\printqueue" fail as it has the IP address in the name.

Save bet seems to be all workstations must be bounced after Samba has been bounced. (This being with a Samba PDC configuration at least)
