[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#572390: smbumount does not remove entry from mtab

Package: smbfs
Version: 2:3.2.5-4lenny9

After mounting a remote share with smbmount and unmounting it with
smbumount, the entry in /etc/mtab is not properly removed even though
the share is in fact unmounted.  It must be removed manually, by
somebody with root access.

My gut says this should be important severity, since it allows local
users to put the mtab in an inconsistent state, but I will defer to
the maintainer.
