I have redirected this to Samba Technical. Steve French, the author of the 
Linux 2.5/2.5 smbfs will most likely be interested in this.

For Samba-technical,  J C Lawrence <claw at kanga.nu> said that sometimes, 
after mounting a Win2K3 (I think) file system, he gets the error shown 
below, but not always.

OK, I meant a network capture with Ethereal or tcpdump, taken from either 
the client (Linux) or the server.

OK, so this says it is the new version of smbfs. Hopefully, Steve will 
chime in with some further debugging suggestions of his own.
