samba at is the right list for this question.

It's not a bug and it's not even a problem (shouldn't be anyway). That is
why the second message says "sucessful". It is caused by the server
disconnecting and smbfs/smbmount reconnecting.

It would be nice to delay the error message until after the retry and be
quiet if all goes well. Currently it is a bit verbose.

You don't have to if your samba is compiled with ssl support, which RH7
does (guessing from the "2.0.7-21" version name). If it annoys you I think
you can disable it with "ssl = no" in smb.conf. Again, it looks like an
error but it can be safely ignored.
