Is libsmb (the one that comes with samba) reentrant?

I doubt it is re-entrant. 

hmm, looking over the code it is probably not far off. The only static
variable is an error string. It could probably be made re-entrant with
very little work.

A higher priority would be to document it and make it build as a
standalone library though :)
