Can't smbumount - permission denied

I smbmounted a LM9 machine from a LM8.1 machine last night to tar across
some folders. The tar failed after 1Gig with " wrote only 0 of 10240 bytes,
tar:error not recoverable: exiting now".

Now, even as root i can't smbumount the remote share.

it just says permission denied.

Anybody any ideas

even if i log out and then back in again, the mount is still there.

many thanks

Mr Smiley
