Yeah - but weren't the glibc features removed, removed due to security
problems? If so, should smbsh use such calls anyway?

For the brief time smbsh existed under RedHat 5.x (old glibc), I got majorly
into it - it certainly beats the socks off smbmount in terms of
functionality (gives you Network Neighbourhood, "automount" of all servers
simultaneously, etc, etc). 

Now we have a Samba-world where Linux has smbmount and everyone else has
smbsh :-(
