Nothing interesting:

In nmbd log there are lots of following lines:

Looks like lots of machines ask about WPAD.

But then I noticed following lines:
process_local_master_announce: Server MMC-NAS-COPY at IP
is announcing itself as a local master browser for workgroup KHK and
we think we are master. Forcing election.
Samba name server DC has stopped being a local master browser for
workgroup KHK on subnet

Looks like our iomega nas box wants to become local master browser.
This shouldn't happen, right?
In normal circumstances Samba should always win?

I changed smb.conf:
os level = 65
(was default, 20, before).
Let's see what happens.
