it with a higher debug level (4, check your smbmount.log), add more debug
printouts to the smbmount main loop, getting a core dump from it.

The mount should become unusble at this point because smbfs no longer has
a connection and it can't contact it's smbmount daemon to get a new one.

I need to find out if/why that would cause the busy message. When the
connection closes any open files are closed, so closing shouldn't be a

Did you get either of these the second time?
