non-root cannot mount user cifs mount point

The 'user' option for mount does not seem to allow non-root users to mount a mount.cifs volume. My fstab reads as follows:
//fileserver/myshare	/mnt/network/fileserver	cifs	user,noauto,exec,credentials=/home/myname/.cifs-credentials,uid=myname,gid=myname,rw	0 0
When I try to mount without root I get a "mount error 1 = Operation not permitted" error message. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to set certain permissions on the mount points? Please advise.

This may be an appropriate bug report:


There are major issues with the cifs files system driver:
