[Bug 34665] Dapper: Error browsing authenticated Windows shares

Public bug reported:

Affects: nautilus (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

My Windows machines require authentication - i.e. require a known
username/password. In Breezy, I used to be able to browse these
machines. I would be prompted with a username/password dialog box. Once
I filled in the correct details, browsing these shares was like browsing
local folders.

On Dapper (Flight5) however, I am not presented with a username/password
dialog box. Instead, I am given an error box saying that it could not
browse that location. I am not even able to see the shares available on
the machine.

Additionally, when I use Places->Connect To Server, I am able to specify
a username/password and a desktop icon is created for the location. But
I still receive the same error when I try and double-click the icon.

If I boot into my Breezy partition, this all still works so it is
definately not a configuration issue with my Windows machines and hence
should be treated as a regression in Dapper.
