>From the mount man page:

users  Allow every user to mount and unmount  the  file  system.
          This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev
          (unless overridden  by  subsequent  options,  as  in  the
          option line users,exec,dev,suid).

The automatic "noexec" is triggering the errors you see. Remove the "users"
option from /etc/fstab to eliminate the errors.
