The simple "cat > titi ..^D ; cat >> titi" case works when mounted with
the noperm option.

BTW : the fstab content is now :

\\r-canaris\ceva6380 /network/home cifs
ambaShareId 0 0

and the .sambaShareId contains my windows domain (FTRD) login id (same
as $USER value BTW) and the associated password and "umask" at shell
prompts return 0022.

Hope this helps.
