Hello Fathi,

thank you for bringing this to my attention. I need some time to investigate 
this issue, check what options are available and modify the code accordingly.

A quick check showed that using sudo and mount.cifs & umount would work (you 
need no entry in /etc/fstab in this case), but this is not really a solution 
for users who cannot gain super user privileges to change /etc/sudoers.

fusesmb seems to need a lot of configuration (I haven't used it until now). 
Maybe this is the way to go, but I'm a bit reluctant to implement support for 

Best regards
