mount problems

I have a curious problem I encounter when trying to use the mount
command to view shares on my girlfriend's Windows XP machine.

I am ping her machine via both DNS (which is statically set
in /etc/hosts) and by IP address.

But ...

I can only mount shares via her IP address, not by her DNS name.

Please find the terminal output below. Any assistance / suggestions
anyone could provide would be great. Should this be filed with bugzilla?
