smbfs makes directory unusable in 2.2.15pre ...

Date: Sun Apr 30 2000 - 02:52:39 EST

If I use smbfs with any of the recent kernels (2.2.15pre x), sometimes
it will somehow get into a condition where the directory where the
mount point is gets an i/o error if I try to even do an ls. This i/o
error persists even if I stop smb and mnb services and the only way to
fix it is to shut the whole system down for a reboot.

This usually happens if the Windows share is mounted for a long time.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
