Webmin + smbfs problem

I'm running debian sarge and I'm trying to mount a windows share with samba. I'm using webmin to try and do this.
Within webmin I go to "System" -> "Disk And Network Filesystems" -> Select "Windows Networking Filesystem (smbfs)" and then click "Add Mount". Everything fine up to this point.
The problem comes when selecting the machine with the share that I want to mount. If I type the hostname in the "Server Name" box it works fine, but if I click on the "..." button next to the "Server Name" box to browse the list of available windows machines I get the error "Failed to retrieve server list from localhost. Maybe the server does not allow browsing"
I've Googled this and can't seem to find and answer. All I want to do is browse the list of windows machines

let's see if we can't get a little more action in the networking forum, moving.
