'state' - has been created to do this: do the name query on the wins server

jeremy @ vantive wrote the original code to do this, which used the
name_query() function.  i'm trying to avoid name_query: it times out and
generally messes things up, but using queue_netbios_packet() and
queue_netbios_pkt_wins() is... not intuitive?
