Sorry, does not work. Or more exactly:

- _if_ the server is online at boot, it works (because your settings don't 
include the noauto I guess)

- but if the server is off line, and is started later, then you can't mount 
over a FolderView icon, you get the usual "Could not mount device. the 
reported error was: mount: only root can do that"

This is not it. With both settings, I can mount from the command line as user 
(mount /mountname). So this is a GUi problem, a KDE problem, it is registered 
as a bug and has not yet) been corrected.
