This could also be why SAMBA support does not appear to work on Mac OS X. Version 10.3.6 appears to use SAMBA version 3.0.5.

I think smb support is "root-only" or is near it :(
Any ideas?

QEMU gives specific commands to smbd so that it can be run as non root (in particular, it uses stdio to communicate with smbd instead of a priviledged socket with a port < 1024). I think your problem comes from the fact that you use smbd version 3. I only tested QEMU with the version 2.

The solution would be either to support version 3 or to include the smbd code in QEMU so that we can be sure it behaves as expected.
