If it was indeed mounted with the 'user' flag, i shall direct you to a
well hidden (and maddeningly annoying if you don't know about it)
comment in the man page for the mount command:

user   Allow  an  ordinary  user  to mount the file system.  The
       name of the mounting user is written to mtab so  that  he
       can  unmount  the file system again.  This option implies
       the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless  overridden
       by   subsequent   options,   as   in   the   option  line

Basically, to prevent someone mounting media that has inappropriate
software on it and running it as setuid, user(s) silently adds the
'noexec' flag, amoung others.

4 years and still learning, like the rest of us :) (i still run into new
vim sequences i didn't know before, and i've been using it for the last
6 years or so. the trick is to know where to look.)
