Description

Avahi needs to be fixed for NetBIOS names that contain UTF-8 characters. Otherwise /var/log/messages fills in with messages like these:

Oct 31 13:51:46 xxx avahi-daemonr14003: avahi_normalize_name() failed.
Oct 31 13:51:46 xxx avahi-daemonr14003: server.c: Packet too short or invalid while reading question key. (Maybe a UTF-8 problem?)
Oct 31 13:51:46 xxx avahi-daemonr14003: server.c: Packet too short or invalid while reading response record. (Maybe a UTF-8 problem?)
