SubjectRe: mounting cifs filesystems not possible
Well this is indeed strange. First I thought the problem was solved
because I had an old version of mount installed, but the successful
mount with latest version of mount.cifs was only by chance. I get 1
successful mount out of ~ 30 tries (each time unloading the cifs
module). And looking at the source in export.c I discovered, that
reexporting cifs- mount points is still not supported :-( : This seems
to be very tricky. If you need more information to track the tainting
problem down, pls give me a note.

PS: please CC, I'm not on the list
