The nonsense number is the process id, to separate messages if you had
several smbmounts running.

Don't ever make smbmount setuid root. smbmnt yes (don't if you are
paranoid :), but not smbmount.

That's odd... verify that smbmnt is in /usr/bin and copy it there if it
The other known problem with mounting like this is that when using the
'guest' option some versions of smbmount wouldn't connect without a
username (but smbclient would). The difference could be in the samba
After logging in you have a username in $USER, so try adding a username=foo
to that mount line. Or upgrade samba.
