	On my Archlinux server with samba 3.3.4-1, I am getting a smbd error that is 
filling my logs and I'm not sure why. The box 'ripper.3111skyline.com' shown 
below is a dual boot box and spends most of its life and mom's XP box and 
masquerades as an openSuSE 10.3 box the rest of the time. There are seven 
other boxes on this lan with 5 others being dual boot XP/openSuSE or Archlinux 
and none of the other boxes appear in the logs -- so why ripper?

	I don't know whether there is something stuck in a browse list cache 
somewhere or whether there is an issue with addressing with this one machine, 
but I have not been able to solve it and needed to beg a bit of advise from 
the experts. So what should I check, test, etc. to help figure out what is 
causing this issue? Thanks in advance for any help.
