Re: cifs share is not mounted during boot

I have this cif share in my /etc/fstab which is not mounted during
and I can't figure out why:
After boot, giving a "mount -a" as root mounts it without problem. It
not a matter of the credential file not being available during boot:
Even with the credentials supplied in /etc/fstab directly the share is
not mounted and nothing ever get logged.
I'm running updated debian squeeze and would appreciate some help!
I'm experiencing a problem that might be related, but, more than a
"help" post, this is a "me too" post.
I'm on Lenny, using autofs to mount a sshfs drive over my home wireless
LAN. My symptoms are similar to yours: autofs never functions at boot,
since the wireless card connects quite late in the boot process (not
until I log in, actually), so the share is unavailable during boot. One
of the funniest discoveries, for me, was that autofs -- which should be
a daemon handling on-the-fly mounts for you -- won't work if your share
is unavailable at boot (say, server down, or network down, or
whatever). Anyway, another intriguing discovery I made is that
restarting the autofs daemon from a virtual terminal doesn't help
either. To get autofs going, I must restart it from a Gnome terminal
session (with superuser credential, of course).
Reading through the logs, I saw that the ssh server never asks for my
RSA key -- it goes straight for the password. Of course autofs can't
All the above symptoms got me thinking that this may be a ssh key
manager (or what's its name) issue -- when I'm logged into my desktop
environment, Gnome apparently provides a key manager which handles the
negotiations with the remote ssh server; during boot, on the other
hand, there is no such key manager running, and consequently, autofs is
asked for the password and gracefully bails out.
