smbfs & rsync

On one of my machines running 6.1-RELEASE rsync over a smbfs share is 
failing with the following error:

building file list ... rsync: readdir("/ipa1/tmimage/2001"): Bad file 
descriptor (9)
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion

sent 246047 bytes  received 20 bytes  492134.00 bytes/sec
total size is 3876995600  speedup is 15755.85
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at 
main.c(892) [sender=2.6.8]

where /ipa1 is a smbfs share.

I've googled and found this [1] particular article that pinpoints a 
simple coding mistake, anyone knows if this is going to be fixed in 
6.2-RELEASE? /usr/sbin/mount_smbfs is the binary affected,
