Thank you very much for this clearification. This explains much strange
behaviour I faced.

Do you see any chance that this gets fixed in a forseable time? Linux seems to
support SMBv3 by now. Or is a support considered obsolete and handled
via /net/samba43?

For a security appliance, I try to avoid as much packages as possible, so
therefore my concerns regarding mount_smbfs.

Thanks you very much,
