       I am using samba-3.0.11-5 in a windows 2003 domain. every thing
is working fine but some times  when users from windows XP machines try
to browse samba shares from 'run' menu by using \\filer01 or
\\IP of samba server, they cant go to shares.they get error 'The
specified format is not correct '. this problem get resolved
automatically after some time and it happens again after some days.
