Eyeballing smbmount source...done.
A quick look suggests that smbmount should handle spaces just fine.
Downloading util-linux source...done.
The source is a bit convoluted. Inconclusive.
Compiling with -g...done.
Running gud-mode...oops, no debugging symbols.
Relinking because stupid makefile links with -s...done.
Seems to work fine. I should have saved myself some effort and just
tried the whole thing sans source, sans debugger, sans everything.
I must conclude that you are using a different version of smbmount
and/or util-linux than I am. I have the Debian-packaged util-linux
2.10f and smbfs 2.0.7.
