The segfault is probably due to the smbsh/glibc-2.1 conflict reported at

Here's what it says:

smbsh doesn't work with glibc-2.1 on Linux systems. That includes RedHat
6.0 and many other recent Linux distributions. It is very hard to fix this
as the glibc maintainers have deliberately removed the necessary hooks for
smbsh to work. They don't like the idea of user space filesystems.

The only thing we can suggest right now is to use smbfs instead.
