File's there.

The permissions for the above file are listed as:

-rw-r--r--   1 root  root        35 2008-05-27 16:17 smbcredentials

> 3. that the file contents are correct

The file contents are the same as pre-upgrade.

There is nothing in syslog of any note.  There is a single cifs error
from yesterday when I executed "sudo mount -a" and the Windows box was
powered down.

I don't think this is a cifs issue (alone) as the NFS share doesn't
mount at start-up either.  I thought that it was either a
permission/group issue or the machine was attempting to mount the shares
before it had finished connecting to the network.
