using mount_smbfs

Well, I still maintain there is a bug here. I realize "whatnot" covers a lot of ground, but on any other version of Unix, you can mount a share anywhere you want and unmount it at will. In OS X, you get a cute icon on the desktop if you do a "normal" mount, .e.g. /Volumes/whatever, but if you follow the instructions in the original post, you don't get the icon until you click on the share and then you can't unmount the share.

Permissions has nothing to do with it and remounting the share on a different mount point should not suddenly allow the original mount to go away, especially since there is an "in use" error message, but it still unmounts, hence the bug.
