PMJI, but do you know if it's possible to handle a share name containing 
a space when mounting smb filesystems using fstab?

I tried

"//user at server/Drive C"
'//user at server/Drive C'
//user at server/Drive\ C

None of these worked. I know that using spaces in filenames is a Bad 
Idea, but this is Windows we're talking about here ;-)

If it is not possible then perhaps a PR is needed to get this addressed? 
In my case I renamed the share on the Windows box (which broke a few 
shortcuts) but this may not always be possible - in a corporate 
environment for example.
