Upgrade to 2.4.10 or later, or edit fs/smbfs/proc.c and enable

You should then get a single error printout and then a reconnect. At least
that is what I get in 2.4.19-pre5, and if I do the opposite change
(disable the retry flag) I get the error you describe.

If you are going to test a more recent kernel you should know that
2.4.18 has a bad smbfs bug. 2.4.17 or 2.4.19-pre are fine.
