Good to see the old sense of humor is in proper working order, eh?  ;-)

Excellent suggestion.  As it turns out, upgrading to the latest (1.1.2)
solved my problem!

As an added benefit, it also solved _all_ my other problems!  Specifically,
I was able to 'browse' (ie use smbclient) from the server-side, but not from
the client side.  Now it's instantly working in both directions!  Yippee!
