Hi -

mount.smbfs is not working on 3.0.0beta3; it has been working thru
3.0.0beta2. When I re-install 3.0.0beta2, it works again.

*Linux host <hanako>
  Linux version 2.4.20-4GB-athlon (root at Athlon.suse.de)
  (SuSE Linux 8.2)) #1 Fri Jul 11 20:16:51 UTC 2003
*samba-3.0.0beta3 complied from source, with configuration
  option '--with-smbmount'. (same configuration used for beta2).
*Windows 2000 Professional <rocky> - current with windows update.

mount -t smbfs //rocky/c$ /mnt/rocky -o rw,credentials=/my/credentials/file
mount.smbfs //rocky/c$ /mnt/rocky -o rw,credentials=/my/credentials/file

Jul 22 14:42:44 hanako kernel: smb_receive_trans2: data/param too long,
data=1024, parm=57231
Jul 22 14:42:44 hanako kernel: smb_trans2_request: result=-5, setting
Jul 22 14:42:45 hanako kernel: smb_retry: caught signal

smbfs daemon is alive; a 'ls' on /mnt/rocky 'hangs' (ctrl-c works).
umount /mnt/rocky clears hang/stops daemon.

Any suggestions on where I go from here? I don;t understand the
kernel errors logged, and can't find documentaion on them. Can
someone please point me in the right direction?
