smbmount does not work, but smbclient does (SuSE Linux 8.2)

Dear all,

after switching from SuSE Linux 8.1 to 8.2 one of my scripts that 
automatically mounts a disk via SAMB stopped working.

The command 

smbmount // /media/user

exits with the message: 

mount.smbfs started (version 2.2.7a-SuSE)
mount.smbfs[30240]: ioctl failed, res=-1


smbclient //

allows connection with the message:

Domain=[EGS] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.7]

Any idea why this happens?

Kind regards, Karsten.
