Blind guess: I've been seeing udp 137<-->137 traffic being rejected on my
firewalls for quite long time. Further investigation showed up that if
netbios is configured on external `interface' of windoze box, windoze
tries to resolve remote boxen name via netbios as well. Maybe this is
another breed of microsoft crawling featurism? :)
