All the routes are static, and the two hosts can ping each other without 
problems. The routing works perfectly fine.
Having tcpdumped a bit what was going on, I could only figure that the 
machines are correctly registering to the server, and the servers 
responds that it's okay.
The real problem is that it simply does not fill the browse.dat file 
with other entries than itself and the WinXP box that is on the same subnet.
With a closer look to wins.dat, I can see that all the machines are 
present, and have the correct IP addresses.

So my personal conclusion is that there is a misconfiguration of samba 
somewhere, that makes it generate a browse list only for it's own 
subnet. I think it's weird.

Thanks for helping
