hi list,

i have a big problem:

i try to mount a samba v3 share from a client with

mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt -ousername=user,uid=0

but the mounted directory doesn´t set the uid of /mnt/* to 0 and leaves 
it to the uid of "user"

this problem only occurs with libsmbclient-3.0.4-1.27 and samba 3.0.x 
(from SuSE 9.1)
it doesn´t occur with libsmbclient3-2.99_3.0.0rc3-18 (from SuSE 9.0) and 
samba 3.0.x

so i think the prob is on side of the client

can anyone help me please?
