I found an interesting link here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=826938
They edited both smb.conf ( name resolve order = lmhosts bcast wins host)  Notice this resolve order is different than the one I am using.  They also modified nsswitch.conf (hosts:	files dns wins)   to get name resolution working.  I tried that, and although it fixes the name resolution with ping issue, some of the nautilus network browse functions seem to stop.  For example, I can't browse my own machine's samba shares.  For the time being I have set the smb.conf back to where I had it and returned nsswitch.conf to it's default as well.
