We're currently experiencing some problems that wasn't a problem in 3.0.4.
Since SP2 was installed printers get connected \\<ipaddress>\<printer-name>
instead of \\<netbios-name>\<printer-name>. It's more common on SP2
machines but it happens on non-SP2 machines.

Although these issues are not consistent.

Which some windows applications seems to have a problem with.
(Citrix-stuff etc.)

With 3.0.4 printers get connected as \\<netbios-name>\<printer-name>
regardless of SP2 or not.

As a result were having problems pinpointing the problem wheter it's SP2
or Samba 3.0.7.

So is there anyone else experiencing this and/or know of a workaround ?
