Yes, David,

	Now that you mention it, I have the answer! I installed:


and cifs is still broken. Upon install all of the Linux-to-Linux cifs mounts 
immediately fail and cannot be remounted until all samba/cifs packages are 
downgraded to the only available openSuSE alternative of 3.0.26a--bummer.

	Am I the only one affected by this??? Is there a workaround? Can I check/send 
anything else to help fix this?
