Ok - the problem is this looks like a smbfs problem, not a Samba
server problem. The Samba Team doesn't maintain smbfs - one of our
members (Steve French from IBM) has written and maintains cifsvfs,
the replacement for smbfs. I don't think we can promise to fix any
smbfs problem as we aren't the maintainers.
