    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

This entry produces a separate log file for every client connecting. Be
alarmed if you ever see a log file with a name like
87-193-10-181.ipool.celox.de !

Your browsing problem might be dns- related. Do you have
network ip, host name and short name in /etc/hosts? Like:	samba.marathon	samba
How are names and addresses managed in your subnet? Static, dhcp?
Can you resolve a hostname of a client?
