As far as we know, NO. :-( This question keeps coming up, and I think 
it's one of the biggest shortcomings of samba today.

This kind of info is essential in a corporate environment.

I tried to modify samba once to include ip in the logs, but as I'm no 
programmer, my attempts failed spectacularly. :-(

Maybe we could put some money together, to sponsor this? No idea what 
kind of money would be required, though...
