bug description from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gvfs/+bug/475679
When mapping a standard Windows Share, I am able to see the contents of the file system. When mapping a Windows DFS share, I am unable to see the contents of the directory. Mapping is done through Gnome: Places->Connect to Server... The connection string is smb://domain;username@server/dfs

Using a terminal, I can cd to the dfs share, and type ls, and see the
contents: (example)

:~/.gvfs/dfs on server$ ls
office sites

Using a terminal, if I cd to the dfs share and type ls on one of the
existing folder, I get:

~/.gvfs/dfs on server$ ls sites
ls: cannot access sites: No such file or directory

The ls shows me the folders/files are there, but cannot find them.

Since upgrading from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10, this has been an issue. I can map the same DFS share in Windows and have proper access. I may be doing something wrong, but this seems like a bug, since it was working previous to the upgrade.
In my case, a jaunty jackalope (samba-common = 2:3.3.2-1ubuntu3.3) works fine on one pc but my labtop running Karmic Koala  ( samba-common 2:3.4.0-3ubuntu5.4) fails.
