I'm apparently missing some basic element of the smb connection
syntax or something.  I got the latest cvs tramp and can connect to
one windows machine share with this:

  /smb:address@hidden:/hgpxp-c/ <RET>
I then get prompted twice for password.  (shouldn't it be only once?)

But then trying the same thing on a second machine:


I get prompted twice for password but am then told:
   Cannot make local copy of file `/smb:address@hidden:/bjpxp-c/'
it can't be a permissions thing, at least not on localhost or I'd hit
the same snap on hgpxp

  From *Messages*:
tramp: Started process (smbclient //bjpxp/bjpxp-c -U reader)
tramp: Sending password
tramp: Fetching /smb:address@hidden:/bjpxp-c/ to tmp file /tmp/tramp.2040FcX...
tramp-smb-handle-file-local-copy: Cannot make local copy of file 

However both machines/share are accessable with the normal smbclient

   $ smbclient //bjpxp/bjpxp-c -U reader
  added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
  Got a positive name query response from ( )
  smb: \>

Any ideas why one works and the other fails?
