[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#510835: smbfs: smbmount with option -o sec=krb5 fails with mount error 5 = Input/output error

Package: smbfs
Version: 2:3.2.5-2
Severity: normal


when I call smbmount //server/share mountpoint/ -o sec=krb5 it asks for
a password (which is not needed with kerberos) and fails to mount the share.
The output is:

mount error 5 = Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

dmesg says: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -5

It is still possible to access shares using kerberos with smbclient, but
mounting them fails.
