There's lots of UNIX and lots of UNIX shells, and what graphical program it's running inside doesn't really matter. You already told me it's BASH, though -- sorry about that, the question's become almost reflexive Smilie

SOLVED! (sort of)
The problem was that the script started a vpn-connection and once this is established, I cannot mount the share any more. Therefore, whenever I tried the same command outside the script, it worked, whereas within the script it failed as it was executed after establishing the vpn-connection.
By moving the critical line above the line where the vpn connection was established, the share mounted correctly. Need to trouble-shoot somewhere else now. Thanks a lot for your help!
