Maybe are the netbios (part of windows networking) requests to each other
You can see it easily with dctrl monitor, also there's the option to use a
packet sniffer such as tcpdump or sniffit to see what is really happening
in the network
This is what I have to avoid that (you must attach it to your /etc/diald/standard.filter
If you find it as usefull as I, we could tell to include this in future
diald packages, reply me if this is Ok to you
