Thanks Steve, That's fixed it for me (Setting /etc/samba/smb.conf to:
name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host).
I had previously thought that adding the value "wins" in the line in
/etc/nsswitch.conf as suggested by va9rant had fixed it, and it had, but
it also stopped the network drives mounted in /etc/fstab from mounting,
as they stopped being able to be resolved (despite being on the same
server as the one I was having trouble manualy mounting).
Anyway, thanks Steve
