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

Apparently in samba you can enter a share section that contains a '/'
(for instance [test/t]) and in smbclient you can use the share like any
other share.

In mount.cifs everything after the first slash in the sharename is
considered a so called prepath: when mounting it will traverse the
subdirs in the share and mount only the resulting path. With smbclient
this won't work as it expects the 'prepath' to be part of the sharename.

Is a sharename containing a '/' what you meant by
<directory>/<sharename> or is it even something else?
