Why does everyone ask this when I report samba problems? :)
Yes, of course I have, otherwise how could I mount at all?
(and no, there is no version confusion).

I just saw problems with some images I copied using smbclient, they
contain stripes of black (zeros?, and since they are bmp I didn't
notice anything wrong when sending them through a bmp2gif filter).

This indicates some kind of communications problem, and perhaps not a
smbfs specific problem. But I always get the same error message with
smbfs, the bmps could be copied again and then they were not corrupted. (I
copied a large number using mget)

I have had no problems using samba/smbfs with any other directory than
this, and I'm sure I would have noticed this frequent random errors
