FC9 Upgrade Woes: mount.cifs hangs after password prompt

Hey group

I upgraded from FC5 to FC9 tonight, and one of the things I can't seem to find any help on is something buggy with my smb mounts. I have an iomega NAS that previously I was using

mount.cifs //{ip}/{share} /smb/{sharemount}

to mount, and now when I try the same, I get prompted for a password (even if none is required), and then nothing. Doesn't go back to the prompt, doesn't mount, nothing. If I hit Ctrl-C within the first few seconds, it'll bail back to the command prompt. Longer than that, and I have to close the console window and start a new one. Furthermore, these instances of mount.cifs keep running in the background no matter how many times I try to kill them.

I've tried re-installing the smb packages, no dice there. I tried using smbclient to connect to the drive, and it gives me the following:

Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
session request to failed (Call returned zero bytes (EOF))
Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
session request to 192 failed (Call returned zero bytes (EOF))
Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Call returned zero bytes (EOF))

I tried connecting to a public (not-password-protected) smb share on my own system (localhost) with smbclient, and got prompted for a password, then it hung just like trying to mount. Am I missing something? Is there some security package missing? No notes in /var/log/messages. HELP!!!!
