Well, that's what I thought. That's why I was *totally* suprised when all
of a sudden I wasn't getting those log entries any more.... It took me a
while to track down my changes to figure out what "fixed" it.

And that's why, in causually troubleshooting this problem in the past, I
never considered that the problem was even on the local system.... I
thought it was some NetBIOS thing or something bizarre.... But, things
were working, so I've been ignoring it....
Oh, and the box is not used at the console - no monitor/kb even attached.
Anyway, just thought I'd post and see if anyone had any comments....
