If disabling LinuxExtensions works as described above, there may be a
problem with the support for the Unix/Linux/POSIX cifs protcol
extensions on the device you are mounting (which is why it is important
to note the version information of the server as it is reported over the
network).  Not that you can also disable Unix extensions on reasonably
recent Linux kernels by specifying "nounix" as a command line option.
Specifying "nounix" on mount forces the client to treat Samba servers
(and others which would otherwise support the cifs unix extensions) like
Windows (and just use the more limited set of protocol operations).
