Can you drag-n-drop to Trash?
Authored by: wfolta on Mar 14, '03 04:54:31PM

I noticed that when I used mount_smbfs that if I tried dragging the resulting mount to the Trash, it hung the Finder and didn't unmount. Any tips for making this work?

This is an issue I admit, and one that has been mentioned in earlier hints - the Finder appears to have as many bugs with unmounting as it does with mounting in the first place! I don't have an answer for it. At least it doesn't cause any problems at shutdown.

One thing that looked like a key to me is that the Finder's mount_smbfs has an additional argument of "-o noautomounted" or something like that.

But I also got frustrated by a couple of other details that the Finder's mount handles and figured I'd have to write an entire shell script and didn't pursue this.
