Default Fedora 13 Samba weirdness

Today I saw a very weird behavior when mount samba shares.
On F11, I used to mount samba shares with the following command:

mount //sambaserver/share /local/mountpoint -o username=USER

Then I was prompted for a password. This way, my password was never
printed on the screen.
Now on F13, when I tried the same scenario, I got an error message:

share mount is write-protected, mounting read-only
could not mount share in write protected mode.

After I googled around, I found that, in order to solve the problem, i
have also to pass the password as an option to mount, like:

mount //sambaserver/share /local/mountpoint -o

Only thing is, by doing this the password will show up in 'mount'

//sambaserver/share on /local/mountpoint type cifs

and is not visible to me only, but to any user on that system that runs
mount command.

Does anyone knows how to avoid this?
