    Here's my results. With filemode 3, all is well. With 5, errors:

    Jan 15 21:34:10 linux kernel: smb_proc_readdir_long: name=\*, entries=0,
    rcls=2, err=1
    Jan 15 21:34:10 linux kernel: smb_refill_dircache: readdir failed,

    I tried 7 as well, and it looks ok. And Win95 still likes to hang up if
    there's no activity. Would it be feasible to automatically do a umount
    and remount if the connection is lost? Or a keepalive signal to the
    server? I'm not sure if Win95 lets you modify this "feature," but I'll
    look into it.
