Why are you using quotes?
The smbmount syntaxis is:
smbmount {service} {mount-point} [-o options]

The file /home/myname/smbpassword should have the following syntaxis:
username = <value>
password = <value>

But I think that you are using this in your smbpassword file, since it is working in the GUI.

I have a Windows 2003 server with a share
I try and mount a drive as follows :

cd ~
mkdir testsmb
smbmount //servername/sharename /home/myname/testsmb -o 
and everything seems OK
but a ls of testsmb gives
?--------- ? ?     ?      ? smbtest
you can cd to the directory but ls gives permission denied

If I use the Gnome GUI it works OK
This is RH FC4
