smb problems

on Kubuntu 11.10 with all upgrades, including to KDE 4.7.4

suddenly smb browsing in a LAN with 2 windows 2003 servers is not 
working (I think after the 4.7.4 upgrade). I have/had 2 shares marked in 
Dolpin Places I would just click on and they would open, I have/had a 
printer on the server that I use.

Suddenly printer is not working, had to change from shared printer 
smb://workgroup/server/sharename to smb://192.../sharename

smb browsing the same, only by using ip number can I access shares on 
the servers.

Anyone else seeing this, time to file a bug report and back to 4.7.3??
