This makes sense, I'll try it. Excellent idea.
I'm new to Samba, so how do I get it to run in debug mode and do the

This is the key. Separate out the logs by incoming client name,
run smbd at debug level 10 and then look in the log.<xp client name>
to see if it's trying to fetch the browse list, and if so why
it goes wrong.
