i don't think it's samba at all, caching the name/comment that is.  i
installed a new pdc and manually recreated everything on the new pdc.
when the windows clients connect, the names for the shared drives in the
"my computer" window still retain the comment of the old pdc.  i can
rename them on the client however.
