       resources.  It  is  safe  to install this program suid root, because only the user who has
       mounted a filesystem is allowed to unmount it again.  For root it is not necessary to  use
       smbumount. The normal umount program works perfectly well, but it would certainly be prob-
       lematic to make umount setuid root.
