FYI: The CIFSFS kernel client is developed independently
of Samba, so Samba version numbers like 3.0.23a mean
nothing to cifsfs mounts - they are known by kernel
version numbers, not Samba version numbers.

See above. Having said that I'm not sure how much
testing Steve does with share level security. I'll
forward your message on to him.

The smbclient program is part of Samba, so it's
fair to use Samba version numbers like 3.0.23a
for that :-).
