This is just a shot in the dark, but have you tried mounting as fstype=cifs
instead of smbfs? My understanding is that the cifs driver is more actively
maintained and the smbfs is kept around mainly for compatability with older
(win 9x) hosts. Note that the mount syntax is slightly different in that the
fmask and dmask options are called file_mode and dir_mode instead, so a
quick man mount.cifs is probably in order.
