Out of 3 ubunty systems (all Feisty), 2 wont see the windows network. Maybe
it's a lil like trying to add things to the session manager? There was a bug
which manifest where permissions and groups weren't setup properly. I don't
know enuf as to why it's happening here as well, but I can already see it
doesn't affect all systems
