I disabled the web client service on my computer, but it does no good. ( 
There are also other sharing folders from windows machinces on my network, 
but I didn't suffer the same problem from those windows sharings...). And I 
also tried to work on the samba server machine locally using smbclient, and 
it seems no this kind of issue....
