           Summary: SMB volumes on desktop give incorrect deletion error
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: nautilus
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: mek at somnonym.org
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

If you mount an SMB volume using the Places > Connect to Server menu, an icon
appears on the desktop. If you select that icon and press Delete, it gives the
following error message:

"You cannot delete a volume icon. If you want to eject the volume, please use
Eject in the right-click menu of the volume"

The problem is that there is no Eject option if you right-click that volume. The
appropriate option is Unmount Volume. So it's just a mis-wording, but definitely
has potential to really confuse end users.

This is in Ubuntu 5.04
