pam_mount errot

I am trying to get pam mount to mount some cifs shares upon user login. It seems that pam_mount is not passing the password off to volumes.
on pam_mount.conf.xml  I have a line like this:
<volume user="*" fstype="cifs" server="" path="%(USER)"
mountpoint="~/HOME" option="dmaks=0700,workgroup=SAMBAGROUP" />

and I get errors when using a line like that on /var/log/messages:
Jun 17 15:48:21 rador3 kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13
Jun 17 15:48:21 rador3 sshd[11408]: pam_mount(mount.c:109) mount: ne peut monter périphérique de type bloc// en lecture seulement

Jun 17 15:48:21 rador3 sshd[11414]: pam_mount(misc.c:56) set_myuid<post>: (uid=0, euid=0, gid=0, egid=0)
Jun 17 15:48:21 rador3 sshd[11408]: pam_mount(pam_mount.c:431) pmvarrun says login count is 6
Jun 17 15:48:21 rador3 sshd[11408]: pam_mount(pam_mount.c:554) done opening session (ret=3)

and the following error messages on dmesg:
CIFS VFS: Send error in SessSetup = -13
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13

So it looks like pam_mount should be getting the password. Any ideas why its not passing it on to volume? Am i missing something?
Anyone have an idea ?

And my file server is a Microsoft 2000 Server
