Crazy permissions on mounted Samba Shares

Have 64bit intrepid running and am having crazy permission problems on
mounted Samba shares from a network hard drive.

Here is an example fstab line
//mybookworld/dad /media/mybook/dad cifs
user=reg,password=xxxx,iocharset=utf8,noperm,rw,gid=1000,uid=reg,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

I have tried everything and yet I can only open documents as read only
in openoffice - I have read man pages and have tried all sorts of
variations and still no joy.  Have missed something or is there a bug?
