Oh dear. That warning is not necessarily telling us that there's a serious
problem - often it's fairly harmless. Did the filesytem misbehave in any
other manner?

A problem we have here is that nobody really maintains smbfs any more, and
it has problems. I was hoping that the stock answer to that would be "use
cifs", but for some reason that doesn't seem to be happening. Have you
tried it? (Last time I looked, cifs didn't work against win98 servers -
maybe that got fixed).
