In the precise case of mounting SMB shares, do you have any solution
to propose if I want to use autofs? The only way I found was to write
my password in /etc/auto.misc, but that does indeed let it slip into
the mount command line. Hopefully the mount process doesn't live for
very long, but that isn't satisfactory. Should I file a bug on autofs
so that it uses the environment variable, or is there any other trick
I am not aware of?
