I have searched for this and the solutions I found were for instances 
where the workgroup name *was* too long.  However, my workgroup name is 
*not* too long.  The spaces between PEGASUS and ^[ are part of the 
message, I did not add them.  If you count them there are 16 total 
including ending ^[.  I can't figure out where the spaces are coming from. 
 This is the same for every Samba server.  Each machine will show this 
message for the other servers but not itself.  MachineA will show message 
for B and C, but not A.  MachineB will show message for A and C but not B.

Servers are Fedora release 20 and 21, Samba versions are 4.1.12 and 15.

PEGASUS        ^[ is too long. Truncating to
