This indeed does appear to be the problem.  Is 'mount' prompting you
for the password, or are you specifying it as a mount option?  Does it
make a difference doing it the other way?  (-o password=blah)

If you disable CIFS UNIX extensions, does that make a difference?
(echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled)  Possibly the
negotiation there is confusing the server.

Does "mount \\whatever --verbose -o blah" give you any new information?

That's pretty much everything I can think of, so sorry I couldn't be
more helpful!
