ok, i've been upgrading not just the clients kernel, also the kernel
from my samba-server. since all machines are running on 2.6.6-1.435,
mounting a cifs-filesystem works.

also, neither nautilus nor the shell are now blocking when doing ls on
the first mounted share, when using mount -t cifs instead of smbfs!
smbfs still locks both!

so, i recommend using cifs instead of smbfs. Join the discussion for any
