libsmb based programs must *NOT* be setuid root.
29612: Connection to nata failed
SMB connection failed

I actually tried both. The reaction is the same (may be synonims?). As

/var/log/messages saying that "noexec" parameter is not recognized by
smbfs (Jan 9 15:24:09 NS kernel: smbfs: Unrecognized mount option
noexec). This is actually not a big issue as I could write a script with
"sudo mount /my/mountpoint". And I probably can exclude this line from
my fstab and specify the parameters in this script. This just does not
look very user-friendly to me (ok for my single-user laptop). It appears
that I cannot use fstab with smbfs volumes if I want international
