I can right now remember 2 ways to get this.
1. If the server is down while someone is accessing the smbfs mount
smbmount will terminate. Apply one of the "fixes" patches
2. There is a signal related problem that will kill smbmount in some
versions of the kernel. Upgrade to 2.2.18-preX or 2.4.0-test8 or later,
those versions contain a workaround. If this is your problem you should
get messages like this in your kernel log:
smb_retry: caught signal
If this does not match/work, come back with kernel version and kernel
logs from when a mount stops working.
