I Think I've got the origin of the problem : Samba doesn't like french
We have a workgroup "sib réseau" every time I clicked on it or every
time name resolution is asking a computer name on that workgroup.

We have :

Received a packet of len 201 from ( port 138
Conversion error: Illegal multibyte sequence(SEAU)
PANIC: failed to create UCS2 buffer

I think the error "Illegal multibyte sequence(SEAU)" is in coherence
with that explain.

I changed the name of the workgroup. For instance there is no problem.

The referenced bug is probably different. 

Thanks for your help.
