I had the same problem, and solved it like this :
- stop your samba server
- locate all the file that are in the same directory as wins.dat
(usually /var/cache/samba) and delete them. You might want to make
backup copies of them before doing this.
- restart your samba server.
All the erased files are automatically created, and the data is accurate.
