ok, that is an unusual situation... you having a problem, and things 
working here :-)

So perhaps we're doing different things:

we mount PER USER under the users home directory. We don't have ONE 
global mount that is shared between all logged-on users, but each has 
his/her own shares under /home/username/share1 -> /home/username/share4

Pam_mount mounts it on logon, both via ssh and xrdp.

The mounted shares also automatically appear as shortcuts on the 
desktop, just like a mounted usb stick does. Very convenient for the users.

So perhaps you are trying to mount 'global shares', that everybody 
should be able to access, logged on as themselves?
