.gtk-bookmarks after Feisty>Gutsy Upgrade

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what changed with gutsy that would make the couple lines I put in /etc/profile be ignored?
I have these lines in the /etc/profile script to add easy access to users network shares, which worked in Feisty...
#Setup Bookmark to Network shares
echo "smb://MySambaServer/$USER">~/.gtk-bookmarks
echo "smb://MySambaServer/public">>~/.gtk-bookmarks

I did some research and thought it was the /etc/xdg/autostart/user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop so I disabled that from running by removing it from the autostart directory. Now if I delete a test account's home directory and logon fresh there is no .gtk-bookmarks file created, which I would think should happen in the /etc/profile script?

Thanks for your time,
