strange fstab cifs automount issue


I want a windows drive to automount at boot (archlinux), so I entered this line into fstab:
Code:
//10.10.10.16/kellerpcroot      /data/www/webdav        cifs credentials=/home/aag/.smbcredentials,rw,user,_netdev,UID=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
However, no mount occurs. The command
Code:
sudo mount -a
results in the following error:

Code:
mount error(22): Invalid argument
However, I can mount the same drive from the command line, and that works fine with the folllowing command:

Code:
1730/199sudo mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=secret //10.10.10.16/kellerpcroot  /data/www/webdav
Now, after having mounted manually, the
Code:
sudo mount -a
command works just fine, which I think means that there is no syntactical error in the fstab.

What might be going on here? This issue is driving me crazy!

You have uppercase UID in your fstab entry which is a syntax error.
