[Samba] [3.4.7] Changing NetBIOS name

	On a Ubuntu host, I changed the "netbios name" setting in smb.conf,
and ran "restart nmbd; restart smbd".

Now, when I type "net view" in XP, I can still see the old name, and
running "net view \\new-name" doesn't work.

Is there a command that must be used in Windows to reset things? Is it
some kind of cache that expires after a while?

Thank you.
