   required stages to become:  a logon server; a domain master browser;
   and a local master browser.

   each of these three things can occur independently on each interface,
   _including_ the wins pseudo-interface.  the only slight caveat is that
   the wins pseudo-interface, by virtue of _not_ being a broadcast
   interface, does _not_ register as a local master browser with the wins
   server, as this doesn't make sense.

JHT ===> William Yost patches integrated to fix leading path on 8.3
filename problem.
Problem conditions:
case sensitive = no
default case = lower
mangle case = yes
preserve case = yes
short preserve case = yes
Problem: Win95 still writes upper case file names.
Patches supplied have been incorporated into mangle.c and server.c
but needs YOSTW to be defined for it to take effect.

If we are happy with the patch, delete old code in mangle.c, then
remove all YOSTW #ifdefs.
