I have got the same problem, since I upgraded from SuSE 8.x to SuSE 9.0.
In /var/log/messages I found following error message:
kernel: smbfs: Unrecognized mount option noexec
The option "noexec" seems to be somehow linked to the option "user". If I
delete the option "user" in /etc/fstab, there is no error message and *root*
can mount the share with "mount /mnt/xxx", but a normal user cannot.
However, I want that also normal users can mount the share.
