Package: samba-common
Version: 2:3.4.5~dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Samba won't correctly get WINS servers list from DHCP, but instead (in /etc/samba/dhcp.conf) :

	   wins server ==

Fix :

In /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/samba, lines 18-21

        local other_servers
        local serverlist

have to be replaced with (for example) :

        local other_servers=""
        local serverlist=""
