[Samba] Weirdo samba error

Ok, this error confuses me.
When I try to mount a share as a normal user, I get an error about that smbmount must be setuid root for user mounts.
I then do a chmod +s on smbmount and tries again. This time, the error says that libsmb based programs cannot be setuid root! What?! I mean come on! 
How can I solve this? I don't want to be logged in as root just to be able to mount samba shares?
I'm using samba 2.2.4.
