    Thanks to all for your responses. I was able to track this down by looking in
    DHCP for machine names that I didn't recognize, and then doing portscan and
    netbios scans on those machines. We're a small enough organization that I
    could easily identify 3 machines I didn't know about. It turned out not to be
    a problem--just a consultant with a very poorly chosen workgroup name.

    Thanks again.
