2) send_mailslot_reply - unique or group datagram argument added.

4) server.c reply_nt1() - added OEMDomainstring to the end.

   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
