So, the story is, Bind gives name like : foo.borghi.lan
instead Samba DNS gives name like : foo.windom.borghi.lan
Samba DNS rolls back to Bind when it is not able to resolve something.

beta was not in the domain a few days ago so it could contain more mistakes.

linte was born as a linux domain experiment so it should be more or less ok.

If you think the problem is the DNS I can try to clean up a bit.
