For all samba 2.x and 3.x
  I thing, that is small bug.
  If I send not broadcast (Unicast?) packet to broadcast IP of my
  subnet, nmbd answer to this packet and I see two samba-server in my
  subnet (on real IP and on broadcast IP)

  Samba server on

  Scanning by Lnetscan (for Windows):
  //Start of scan
  Lserver MAC:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  Lserver MAC:

  //End of scan

  I think, that Samba equivalent unicast packet to
  and Broadcast packet.

  Windows is not answer for this packet in difference Samba.

  P.S. Sorry for my bad English.

I don't think this is a bug in recent samba versions. If you still see any wrong answers with a recent samba version, can you please reopen this bug and attach a network captture showing the broadcast request and samba's reply that is suspected to be wrong?
