So why not add these to /usr/local/samba/lib/codepages

The codepage would be needed to translate any non us-ascii characters. So
some server/share names might work without it some not. But it shouldn't 
be requested unless you have specified it in your smb.conf.

OTOH, how do you know the failure is related to those error messages?

If 'address' is an ip number, then I don't see why it would fail.
