Tracking down the code leads me at the end to receive_smb, which
probably returns a false when it fails to receive anything. But then
again, it could fail on anything, so nailing it down there seems wrong.
client_receive_smb appears to be merely a wrapper for receive_smb...
Ugh. This stuff is hairy. What exactly needs to happen? Does the code
have to see if there's BOTH an error from client_receive_smb, and if
there's no status set, and then conclude all it is is a broken link?

I haven't figured that one out yet -
A. What exactly _is_ the construct for keeping a status code, from
looking at clierrstr I see that there are 3 classes of error message,
each handled sepreately and differently (RAP messages, whatever the hell
they may be, NT STATUS messages, and DOS and SMB messages (?!) which are
apparently handled together? (?!?)
B. Why not return an int value that some meaning like most C functions
