   Hi Craig,
  I don't know why I didn't think about services. I didn't quite debug
it the way you suggest. I went through system-config-services to see
what was running but is not switched on by default. Turns out that
'nmb' was off by default, but was now running. I don't really know what
this is, but "Starts and stops the Samba smbd and nmbd daemons used to
provide SMB network services." sounds likely to be relevant.
    I'll reboot as soon as I get a quiet moment..
          Thank you,
           Bill
