[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#588305: cifs-utils: Can't mount shares of the type <host>/<directory>/<sharename>

Package: cifs-utils
Version: 2:4.5-2
Severity: important


Since version 4.5-2 of cifs-utils I can no longer mount shares which 
contain a directory before the share name, e.g. //ds01.home/home/stse.  
Calling mount.cifs with -vvvv I see, that the last part of the UNC path 
is deleted (it tries to mount //ds01.home/home).

Shares of the format //ds01.home/data are working.

Downgrading cifs-utils to 4.1-1 solves the problem for me.

Shade and sweet water!
