Not answering your problem, but I have the same behaviour here. (Debian sid,
kernel 2.4.19)
noexec is not mentionned in my /etc/fstab for that filesystem
Thouh "mount" reports (as the /etc/mtab does too):
/path/to_file/cryptofile on /mnt/crypto type ext2 \

Looks like the noexec option is automatically added at mount time?
