Yes. There are netbios names for each office team, and each team at 
least has a "home" share. CIFS cannot mount these due to these bugs. It 
is not practical to ask the sysadmin to change all the names of the 
shares just for me (I'm the only kubuntu user, the rest bar 1 are on 
Windows) as this would cause chaos in the office.
