this fix works perfectly for me. and fixes sharing files with macs
running OSX too, (although that may be a completely different issue).
hope we see it for hardy
should there also be a checkbox in every share dialogue that says:
[x] Allow any user on your local network to view this folder.
which controls the "public = yes" line in smb.conf for the specific folder? Of course, it should be checked by default, as it is clear from this thread that users want to share their files when they click share.
This gives the expected effect: simple passwordless guest access when checked, prompt for password when unchecked
if this isnt possible, the solution named in the bug summary should
definitely be implemented for hardy
