smbfs: questions and issues

Hello there,

I've added a smbfs link to my hotlist, and now I see a bunch of

- whatever I added the guest@ prefix to the hostname, mc constantly
  asks for credentials when I switch to that location, I presume this
  is unexpected, unless I did or understood something wrong?

- the credentials dialog asks for user (I would need it blank, but
  'guest' can be used too) AND domain. The default domain 'WORKGROUP' is
  not fine here.
  Is it possible to set a domain too, in the hotlist entry?
  Is it possible to set an empty user in the hotlist entry? It's more a
  rhetorical question, since 'guest' is a possible value here.

- BTW, if I don't change the domain 'WORKGROUP' to the expected one
  'MYHOST.ORG', connecting to the share simple.. works :-). Is it

- not only I get a dialog asking for credentials, but I get another one
  right after, asking for credentials for IPC$. Is it normal?

- once connected to a smbfs location, if I get back to the parent dir,
  I see a list of shares from the smb server, good. I can freely
  navigate through them. Then, in the Active VFS directories, I get a
  huge list of duplicates like smb://@HOST/SHARE (where HOST and SHARE
  are my relevant values here, same HOST, different SHAREs I've been
  navigating to). Nota bene: duplicates. Is this expected?

- not only I get duplicates, but I cannot Free them, I need to quit mc
  in order to free them. How can I free them w/o restarting mc?
