[Samba] only see a partial list of shares using "smbclient -L"

I've got a Win2K server that shares out several dozen printers and a
number of disk shares.

If I run "net view \\MY-PRINTSRV" from a windows box, I see a full list
of all the disk and print shares.

If I run "smbclient -L MY-PRINTSRV" from a linux box, I see only few
of the those shares.  Randomly selected from the full list, and just
ones with shorter names with no spaces in them.  (Many of the printer
names are long, and have spaces in their name.)

What's causing that, and is there anything I can do about it?

me at mark.atwood.name     you've done anything at all.
