That could be a security hazard. If we assume that cifs unix extensions 
can be made to work, I could bring in my laptop which contains a SUID

The mount output looks OK to me. How old is the client's kernel (sorry, 
I'm not familar with distro version numbers/names)? Does it have CIFS 
Posix support built in (or the relevant modules loaded)?
