[Bug 1778322] Re: gvfs-smb-browse can't browse samba/smb tree

The "windows network" tab depends on an election to happen between the
smb servers, and a master browser being elected. It's the master browser
that is contacted for the list of machines in the network. If that
machine has smb1 disabled, for example, then this won't work, because it
will hit #1828107 (that's my understanding).

I suggest to focus on the test case presented in the bug description. If
there are still cases where it doesn't work, then it's a separate bug,
because disco has the same fix in place as we are applying here.
