OK, there is a function smbc_remove_unused_server, but you need to find a
server pointer to do that.
I guess what is really needed is an smbc_shutdown (and
smbc_shutdown_context) that will close down all connections and clean
While this function will be relatively easy to create, I am not sure I
have the time right now to do that :-)
