Can't get the mount_smbfs to work with password.

Dear list!

I have no problem mounting a windows xp share using the mount_smbfs
method, but I always get a password prompt.

The man file mentions the .nsmbrc that should be placed either in ~/
or /usr/local/etc named .nsmbrc resp. nsmb.conf

I have configured those files as the examples outlines but still it
won't work. Is this an issue anyone else has got?

These are my lines in the /usr/local/etc/nsmb.conf



[HEMMET1:<username removed>]
password=<password removed>
