Currently, mc's smbfs is currently outdated, insecure and badly broken. At some point, Slava undertook a 
rewrite, but it was never finished, and apparently nobody is really interested, so whether it will ever

Hah! If I knew it was outdated.. I've set up smbfs mounts through fstab
and autofs for my user so it's not a problem. I liked the idea to have

in order to avoid cifs mount resistance to hibernation and other hang

itchy as it was), but it's not critical at all. I'll have a look at
smbnetfs as well, thanks for the tip!
