You should test with /auto2 ;) - so it doesn't work in this case either... But 
who runs more than one DOS on one computer? So, this case can be treated as 
unnormal and tricky and should be ommited.

Ok, it's sucks... and that's why I try to move problem out from dosemu to 
network software where it realy works (tested with Novell Netware 3.12).

AFAIK Samba supports only NetBIOS over TCP/IP :(

I have no time and I can't take risk of new features :(

Maybe I just expect to much...
