I've found a bug in smbfs (kernel 2.4.18-SuSE here, both precompiled and 
selfcompiled show this prob).
If I try to list a directory on an smbshare on a windows xp box, that contains 
the character ->'<- (accent tegue(?)), the listing process will crash with 
sig11 and all later processes tying to access the share will hang in state D 

The above mentioned char is in windows european (german) encoding. under linux 
it shows as a different character, cygwin on the xp box escapes it as \264 
(eg ls test\264xy.txt).

I've tared and gzipped a sample file on the windows box, in the hope that it 
doesn't get mangled and you get the original file.

I'm happy to send more information, if you need.
