Mounting DVD with exec

If I mount a DVD as root using mount, then it's mounted
with execution enabled:

	mount /dev/dvd  /media/dvd

If I let mount use the entry in fstab, it is
mounted with noexec, despite the fstab entry:

/dev/dvd  /media/dvd  auto    pamconsole,ro,exec,user,noauto  0 0

Anyone got an idea why mount ignores the exec option?
