[Samba] WinME can't log immediately after restart (Samba as PDC).

    Hello list.
    I use Slackware 10.2 with Samba 3.0.20 as PDC/WINS server in a LAN 
with 6 more PCs running WinME (I'm not to blame, they were there when I 
    I've followed step by step the HOW-TO in setting up Samba as a PDC 
and a WINS server, but when I reboot one of the WinMEs I can't log on to 
the domain immediately. I have to hit [Esc], enter MS-DOS and do

    c:\> nbtstat -R
    c:\> nbtstat -RR

and close the no user session. After that if I'm lucky I can log on. If 
not lucky, I do it again and after the third time or so I get to log on. 
I did

    # tail -f samba.nmbd

and I got this in the samba.nmbd when trying to log on and get rejected:

Unique name registration for name ADMINISTRADOR<03> IP
Original client at IP still wants the name 
ADMINISTRADOR<03>. Rejecting registration request.
Unique name release for name ADMINISTRADOR<03> IP
Refusing request to release name name ADMINISTRADOR<03> as IP is not one of the known IP's for this name.

    The user called "Administrador" (me) was logged on the PC with IP, and was trying to log on into
    ¿Does anybody have a clue on what I'm doing wrong? Attached goes my 
    Thanks a lot in advance.
