Quoting Gary Dale (garydale at rogers.com):

> Version: 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1
> Severity: important
> Tags: squeeze
> Recently you stopped shipping mount.cifs with setuid. Now I can't
> even set setuid. This means that the user option in fstab doesn't
> work, requiring me to mount the shares as root. This prevents me
> from getting the access rights my account should have. I'm sure you
> have a good reason for dissallowing setuid in mount.cifs, but not
> being able to mount cifs shares normally is painful.
