What you say makes sense, especially since under Places the option is
Connect to server, not mount from server.

But that leaves a mystery. The man page of mount indicates the existence
of a mount.smbfs (which does not seem to exist). Then there is smbmount
which I thought used to exist but I can't find it in the distribution.
The implication is that you can mount a file share. Can you? And if you
can , how do you do it?
