Sorry, how many machines are out there that change their host name on a
regular basis, so that the registry name would "always" be wrong ?
The way Samba does this is IMO reasonable:
"netbios name (G) - This sets the NetBIOS name by which a Samba server
is known. By default it is the same as the first component of the
host's DNS name."
I'd propose: If the registry contains an explicit ComputerName entry,
use it as Netbios name; otherwise, use the Unix hostname. This would
affect only the users that enter a Netbios name in their registry, and
thus not those with changing host names that you're worried about.
