Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: smbfs

I can mount a windows share with this command in terminal. But when I do
'ls' in the mount directory, I get a segmentation fault. If I try to
'cd' in the same directory, the terminal crash.

I mounted the share with this command :
sudo mount.cifs //ipadress/data/Groupe /mnt/groupe/ -o username=workgroup/user --verbose

I get : mount.cifs kernel mount options

I cannot unmout after mounting, ie the mount is still listed when I type 'mount'. I get in verbose mode : 
optind 2 unmount dir /mnt/groupe

Nautilus cannot mount this share either. I get an error message : "No
file or folder of this type". //ipadress/data is mounted but it is empty
(no folder named Groupe).

The window share is accessible from a windows XP computer and with smbclient with this command :
smbclient //ipadress/data/Groupe --user=workgroup/user
It is then possible to do "smb: \> ls" after and to see all the files in the folder.

I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and the version of smbfs is 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4
