SMB shares lost and not recreatable when upgrading to hardy

I upgraded to Hardy today. Everything went fine except for one thing:
All my network shares for folders located on NTFS drives disappeared.
What's worse is that I cannot recreate them. I believe this is due to
Hardy turning on a SMB flag that makes it impossible to share files for
which your account is not the owner (the files on my external USB
harddrive is owned by root). I could not find this as a known issue in
Launchpad so I've created this bug report for it:
I also noted that bug #12153 has not yet been fixed. This is not a major
issue but it would be nice to be able to bind SUPER+D to "Minimize All"
because I'm very much used to this key shortcut from this "other" OS.
Besides these issues, tons of stuff was fixed for my hardware
configuration (I now got sound and even the microphone is working which
is great for Skyping; soon my old win2k can retire). The new release is
looking terrific and I'm looking forward to moving my other boxen as
well after the 24th. Great work and thank you!
