smbumount requires a working smbfs. umount is better at dealing with
disconnected mounts.

You could try this patch vs 2.4.4 (kernel) and see if it helps:

For later kernels there is a more experimental patch for 2.4.17

I have done something for 2.2 also, but since you don't say which kernel 
you are using I can't be more specific.
