I need to pam_mount some share from an old samba server, NT1 protocol,
samba3 in NT mode.

If i do by hand, by root:

	mount -t cifs // /home/massimo/Users -o username=massimo,uid=1001,gid=1016,domain=CONEGLIANO,vers=1.0

works as expected. On pam_mount config file i've:

 <volume fstype="cifs" server="" path="Users" mountpoint="~/Users" Options="username=%(USER),domain=CONEGLIANO,vers=1.0">

but enabling verbose mode i catch:

 Dec 21 16:58:58 cnl-ricerca gdm-session-worker[3174]: command: 'mount' '-t' 'cifs' '//' '/home/massimo/Users' '-o' 'username=massimo,uid=1001,gid=1016'

and mount fail.

WHY the damned pam_mount remove 'domain=CONEGLIANO,vers=1.0' options?!
