smbmount 2.0.6 quirks

I've noticed a couple of weird things about smbmount 2.0.6, that seem to
stem from the fact that it creates a separate process:
(1) It always immediately returns success (as from Perl system('mount -t
smbfs ...'), whatever happens later, including failure. Any way to get
a real exit status?
(2) It always dumps a bunch of what looks like debug output ('bind
succeeded' blah blah blah) to my screen, even when I specify 'debug=0'.
Any way to get rid of all this annoying stuff? Even >/dev/null or
2>/dev/null doesn't help.
