i played around with ethereal a bit, looks like samba is trying to
resolve GANDALF, the ethereal entry:

source: my ip, dest: nameserver, protocol: dns info: standard query A

im very sure i've used the name GANDALF for nothing else except my
netbios name.

My dns server awnsers with:  Standard query response, Server
failure[Short Frame]

Is this really samba and if it is, why?

my smb.conf:

workgroup = MIDEARTH
netbios name = GANDALF
security = SHARE

bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = eth0 lo

passdb backend = tdbsam
guest account = nobody

log file = /tmp/samba.log
log level = 1

comment = Data
