   If it works with CIFS, I agree.  Did the smbfs driver /ever/ support the
   Unix CIFS extensions necessary to make hard links work?
I am rather sure it did. I always used the Gnu emacs movemail
utility to retrieve mail from an smbfs volume, which makes
hardlinks to lock the spool files. This worked fine until I
installed etch on 2006-08-24. It took me ages to find out that
the hardlink operation is causing my mail retrieval to fail.
