I had some similar problems. My solution was not to mount this through the
fstab but to mount it later, wenn the machine is already up an running.

I would suggest to add the options 'noauto'(prevents mounting due to the
fstab) and 'exec'(allows executing programs on the smb-share) to the fstab
line. The later mount can be done as user if you just chmod +s
/usr/bin/smbmnt with the mount /plazazaza. This could also be done by a
script with only user rights.

This solved most of my problems, maybe its helpful for you as well.
