On one of my machines running 6.1-RELEASE rsync over a smbfs share is failing with the following error:

where /ipa1 is a smbfs share.

I've googled and found this [1] particular article that pinpoints a simple coding mistake, anyone knows if this is going to be fixed in 6.2-RELEASE? /usr/sbin/mount_smbfs is the binary affected,

You're on the right track with the PR, and Jim Carroll did the hard work of coming up with a patch for the issue. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to test the patch, but will try and make time to...

I'd imagine this is probably too late to get into 6.2 (any dev's care to comment?), but if we're able to test + verify it works then I don't see why it shouldn't make 6.3.

SMBFS could still use a bit of polish in areas... there are also UCS2 patches outstanding that would make talking to MacOSX servers much more pleasant:
