I did what you said, and I saw.
It was a problem off synchronization between two samba servers. I fixed 
it by cleaning each cache.
I don't know exactly the reason why nmbd crashes, here some solutions 
: 	-there was an old empty workgroup with no more "master browser" in 
the cache off my old server,
-the name of this workgroup contained a letter with accent, and my two 
servers don't use the same charset encoding.

Nevertheless, I see the result, now it seems to be good.

Best regards,

Bien cordialement,
