Public bug reported:

I do a Samba-mount through /etc/rc.local. This mount is visible when issuing the mount command:
user at edgy-desktop:~$ mount
//lin01/public on /mnt/lin01 type smbfs (rw)

However, this mount is not visible on the desktop (though gconf-editor
-> nautilus -> desktop -> volumes_visible is set to true), nor is it in
the 'Places' list of Nautilus.

The workaround: browse to the mountpoint, i.e. /mnt/lin01 and create a
(Nautilus-) bookmark.

Detected on Edgy, this is working on Dapper.

Volume-mounts of an usb-disk works as expected (icon on the desktop,
entry in Places-list).

Possibly related to
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/35147 in
which a demand is set for dividing network shares and temporary shares
like an usb-disk.

** Affects: nautilus (Ubuntu)
