Setup: Ubuntu 13.10 server. Ubuntu 13.10 worksstation

The server have some samba shares. Some er private, and others are shared between groups. The problem is the user: user: mz (1002) group: mz (1002)

drwxrws---  4 chp      samba_usr_grp 4096 dec  5 09:01 billeder
drwx------  7 chp      chp           4096 mar 24 12:16 chp
drwx------  2 chpsec   chpsec        4096 okt 30 21:29 chpsec
drwx------  3 mz       mz            4096 mar 25 21:23 mz
drwx------  2 mzp      mzp           4096 okt 30 21:29 mzp
drwx------  2 nzc      nzc           4096 okt 30 21:29 nzc
drwx------  2 public   public        4096 okt 31 00:26 public
drwx------  2 sapphire sapphire      4096 okt 30 21:29 sapphire
drwxrwxrwx  2 root     root          4096 mar 26 14:53 sys_public
drwxrws---  4 chp      samba_usr_grp 4096 mar 21 18:00 sys_smb_grp_share
drwx------  2 testuser testuser      4096 okt 30 21:29 testuser

I try to mount the users drive true fstab with the command:

//server/share /mnt/mountname cifs username=server_user,password=user_password,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=07‌​77 0 0

I try to mount 'billeder', 'mz', 'public' and 'sys_smb_grp_share' They all mount correct, and is working, except 'mz'. They all show up in 'files'. But when I click on 'mz', an alert says (freely translated):

This place can't be shown. You do not have the required permissions to view the contents of 'mz'

If I go to "Connect to server", I can see and access the content, according to access rights.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong?
