Does anyone have any idea why the output of `findsmb` would show XP machines that `smbtree` can't see, and vice versa?

`findsmb` lists all of the linux samba servers on my network, and exactly ONE of the XP servers.

`smbtree` lists all of the linux samba servers on my network, and all of the XP servers *EXCEPT* for the one listed by `findsmb.`

Nautilus seems to use the same method as `smbtree,` because I can see all of my boxes in the nautilus network browser *EXCEPT* for that one listed by `findesmb.` I *can* connect to that missing box if I manually type its name into nautilus's address bar. It just doesn't appear in the listing with everyone else.

This is driving me crazy... ](*,)
