There was a known bug bnc#551376 that fixed a problem of '-p' option being
honoured. This fix is present in dhcpcd-3.2.3 and greater.
openSUSE 11.2 is already shipped with dhcpcd-3.2.3-47.2. I'm using the latest
version from openSUSE 11.2 updates (dhcpcd-3.2.3-47.4.1).

There was a known bug in dhcpcd as mentioned in Comment #9. Please upgrade
dhcpcd version and try to use '-p' option and update whether the issue is

I've entered the -p option to DHCPCD_USER_OPTIONS in
/etc/sysconfig/network/dhcp and rebooted the system. I cannot see any
difference, the script "/etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/dhcpcd-hook [...] up" is
still called every 5 minutes which in turn umounts all cifs shares.

I cannot see that there might be anything wrong with dhcpcd (or its
configuration). For me it seems to be obvious that either the call to "rcsmbfs
restart" (in if-up.d/21-smbfs) should be changed, or rcsmbfs had to be
reworked, that a stop/restart only umounts shares originally present in
smbfstab. (but the latter would also be a poor solution because then some
shares would be periodically remounted every few minutes)
