The error "Operation not permitted" occures when I nmblookup without any
flag, ie. "nmblookup frontier". Nmblookup queries lo0 as I have specified it
in "interfaces" parameter.
$ nmblookup frontier
querying frontier on 192.168.1.255
querying frontier on 127.255.255.255
Packet send failed to 127.255.255.255(137) ERRNO=Operation not permitted
name_query failed to find name frontier

Yep, I have the same.

Yes, I understood. But I don't see anything unusual nor any errors there (in
log.smbd, log.nmbd, log.frontier, log.192.168.1.31) when I do nmblookup..
