Oh, magic numbers ...

I believe this is because you are missing mount.smbfs (or have it in
the wrong place) and mount with 'mount -t smbfs ...'

/sbin/mount.smbfs should point to the smbmount executable, and there
should be a smbmnt from the right version in the path. If it can't find
the helper program mount will do the mount syscall directly and that won't

At least this is what happened to the previous person to report this
message, and I can turn it on or off by doing the following:

# mv /sbin/mount.smbfs /sbin/mount.smbfs.NOT
# mv /sbin/mount.smbfs.NOT /sbin/mount.smbfs
