This is the place. Unfortunately no one seems to answer (or maybe I've
just missed that having been only semi-connected lately).

Not sure what could be wrong, but maybe you should try reproducing it with
smbclient and just play with all the parameters there. I know I have had
to set the workgroup parameter in some situation, but I don't remember

Why smbclient? Well, it uses similar connection code and is better
supported. Maybe if you express your problem in terms of what smbclient
does and doesn't you will get more replies.

Of course you have probably already solved this ...
