I'm trying to track down these errors myself.  They are usually 
attributed to a virus or trojan that happens to be on the network...  
The weird part about them, is they do come from valid IPs on the subnet 
in some cases and are related to specific machine IPs.  So, I'm not sure 
why samba is unable to reference an IP.  Unless, it isn't suffing that 
information because of the invalid placed requests and these are just 
errors in the return packets.

First, check to be sure you don't have a virus or trojan running rampid 
on your network.  You can find out what IP numbers they are by using a 
tool like ethreal to capture the IP traffic and compare the timestamps 
on the IP traffic you collect with the time stamps in the samba logfiles.

I would be glad if someone could find out what this was as well.
