mount works

I use mount -t smbfs //username:password@server/share /mount_point and it works fine.

I think the connect window in aqua ("connect to server") uses mount_smbfs, which is called by mount -t smbfs. Using a config file .nsmbrc for mount_smbfs (see man mount_smbfs) in your home directory influences the behaviour of connecting with "connect to server" from the menu. The syntax of .nsmbrc can be found from the template /private/var/root/.nsmbrc.

I use a .nsmbrc file in /Users/<my name> in order to connect to a NT server through a ssh tunnel, avoiding a complicated smb URL. You can also store scrambled passwords in this config file.
