My mounts ARE specified in fstab as:

192.168.x.x:/folder   /mountpoint   /nfs   noauto,users,exec,rw  0 0

(which mounts perfectly under KDE 3).

Mounting from the command line (mount /mountpoint) works.
Creating a FolderView icon (link to device) is possible, but does not work 
("only root can mount"). Once again, I need the noauto because most of the 
time the nfs share is not accessible (the "server" not being turned on).

This is with openSuSE 11.1 and openSuSE 11.2, KDE 4.3.x
I did not try other distros, but I did search the Internet and have seen other 
messages about the same problem, it being identified as a library bug, but 
not being corrected.
