Quoting Radu Cristescu (radu.c at plutohome.com):
> Package: smbfs

> umount.cifs removes /etc/mtab even if it's a symlink to /proc/mounts
> and writes a regular file instead
> I'm setting the Severity to "grave" because I think losing a symlink

I have been able to reproduce that bug, which I forwarded upstream.
