[Samba] How to get rid of a server comment?

I initially set up my Samba 3.0.20 box with this config option:
server string = My server
Only then I realised that when I map a network drive under XP, it shows
up like this:
share on 'My server (Hostname)' (X:)
Where "Hostname" is the name of the machine. Not wanting "My server"
showing up everywhere I tried to comment out the "server string" option
but that changed the comment to the version of Samba I was using, so
then I set server string to equal nothing.
Only problem is, the comment is back to "My server", even though that's
no longer listed in any config file. When I restart Samba it comes up
as a master browser with the comment field blank, but after a few
minutes it's gone back to "My server".
Even if I edit/delete /var/cache/samba/browse.dat to get rid of the
string, it's back after a few minutes.
How can I get rid of the comment altogether?!?
