[Samba] [CIFS] mount error(13): Permission denied

This is from

	mount <mountpoint>

on openSUSE 13.1m3 running 3.10.1 desktop kernel. The mountpoint and fstab 
entries are identical and working in openSUSE 12.3 on same system. I just 
spent several hours on IRC and elsewhere trying to figure this out before 
thinking to try booting something other than 13.1. :-(

Fstab entry (redacted):
//HOST/share /mountpoint cifs 
guest,nounix,uid=####,gid=####,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0664,noauto 0 0

The host is a Linux satellite receiver, running kernel 3.3.1 and sambaserver 
3.0.37-r8. It's configuration options are crippled. Security = user seems not 
to be an option, but since the device runs on FOSS and there is no manual, 
whether that is in fact the case is unclear. I simply haven't been able to 
make it work except with security = share.

A developer on IRC told me how to get extra debug info:

He said it smells like regression/fallout from removal of security = share 
and will look at it more after sleeping. Anyone else want to comment? Is this 
the right place to discuss?

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
