[Samba] smbumount will not let me unmount

The smbumount manual says:
"With this program, normal users can unmount smb-filesystems, provided
that it is suid root. smbumount has been written to give normal
users more control over their resources."
I installed it as setuid root:
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 618675 Apr 7 23:11 /usr/bin/smbumount
Then I use smbmount to mount a share:
smbmount //server/share ~/mntpoint rw
And it works fine. But when I want to unmount it as a user:
I get this error:
You are not allowed to umount /home/nir/mntpoint
So what is the (mount) point in this? what am I doing wrong?
btw - I also installed smbmnt as setuid root - otherwise it will not let
me mount at all as a regular user.
