My systems: rh61, 2.2.14 + smbfs-nls.patch.

=== 1) smbmount: password length in "ps" output
When a password protected win9x share is mounted, the username and the
length of the password used to mount it are in the ps output.
Could the length of the password be hidden?

=== 2) smbmount: weird problem with a weird setup
- someone has and HD (Win9x) where the volume label of the HD is "Xyz"
- there is a dir "c:\Xyz", 
- the c:\ rootdir is shared (say as "c")
Then when the HD is smbmounted the c:\Xyz dir will appear as a file
(really as a "VOLUME ARCHIVE") and not a dir, its content won't be
To solve this either change the volume label or the dir name.
Smbclient in not affected.
This is real-time, if you change the volume label while the disk is
smbmounted you see the dir re-becoming a dir and vice-versa.
