FW_ALLOW_INCOMING_HIGHPORTS_UDP opens the whole udp port range >1024, that's
not a solution, it just hides the problem and makes people feel good because
the firewall appears to be enabled. If you really only want smb to work
unconditionally use ip_conntrack_netbios. There is no generic way to make
broadcasts work with current netfilter.

That doesn't solve the problem that there is no way to configure 'network
profiles'. That's not SuSEfirewall2's fault though. Infrastructure is missing.
