I want to mount a users folder on one machine into the users folder on
another machine.
i.e. mount \\dc1\users\rowland on client /home/rowland/mnt

Sods law has kicked in, I have now got a mount to work with pam_mount,
but there is a major problem, anything created in the share doesn't
belong to rowland, it is 3000000:domain users. This is not acceptable,
the mounted share belongs to rowland, but nothing inside it does. I
think I will continue to try and get pam_script to do what I want.
