Anyway to make smbclient show full name of share?

I am working on a script to search over an IP range and find all the available shares on a Windows network. To thoroughly test the software, I wanted to have long final names (e.g. Fun Disk Share Disk Fun!) to see if my code could figure out the name of the share. However this is the output I get when I run

smbclient -L //chemzar -N

added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Domain=[UCONN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.8]

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------

As you can see the folder has been truncated, which will cause problems with my script. Any suggestions on how to get around this problem (smbmount can mount the directory).
