[CentOS] Problem mounting CIFS shares with credential file after SAMBA update

Hello all,

This morning i updated my CentOS (5.4) and that included:

samba-3.0.33-3.14.el5.i386.rpm
samba-client-3.0.33-3.14.el5.i386.rpm
samba-common-3.0.33-3.14.el5.i386.rpm
samba-swat-3.0.33-3.14.el5.i386.rpm

I have several mounts if fstab using a .credentials file that worked 
until i rebooted with this updates.

I remember time ago was an issue with the format of credentials file 
(something about a LF at the end or something else)

I've checked the file, added spaces between "=", added a line at the 
end, between username and passwd... but it doesn't work, i always get an 
error like (when i do mount -a):
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

(this is repeated for every CIFS share mounted in fstab)

If i mount it "by hand" it works fine:
# mount -tcifs -ousername=xxxx //192.168.0.100/xxxxx /media/xxxxx
Password:

And then, if i do a mount -a then works! (until i reboot, of course)

# mount -a
#

Do anyone knows what is happening?

Best,
Jose Maria
