[Bug 311350] Re: Auto mount of windows shares doesn't work.

This might be by design...

In Ubuntu 8.10 network connections are handled by the new network-
manager. By default wireless connections are defined "by user" and the
wireless connection only happens when the user logs in. However network
mounts from fstab are run before the user logs in, when the wireless
connection is not yet available...

If you want to use the (wireless) network before being logged in (for
example to automount network shares) you might want to try to convert
your wireless connection to a "system" connection in network-manager
(then it should be more like how it worked in 8.04). Let us know if it
solves it.
