Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2011-04-13 13:55:53 EDT
This should be cifs-utils, not samba.
Comment 2 Jeff Layton 2011-07-08 16:18:30 EDT
Patch for this posted upstream:


I plan to merge it into upstream cifs-utils next week if there are no objections. Once that's done, we'll look at getting the fix into Fedora.
Comment 3 Jeff Layton 2011-07-12 08:25:52 EDT
Made a minor revision to the patch:


...and committed it this morning. I'll see about building an updated cifs-utils soon.
Comment 4 Jeff Layton 2011-07-12 08:34:05 EDT
This is NOTABUG on rawhide or f15 as /etc/mtab there is a symlink. I'll plan to put the patch in f14 though.
