Sure it is not a bug, just expected (but unsignaled, I agree) behavior.
Installing samba add the main user to the sambashare group. Unless you
are in thios group, you'll be unable to mount shares. It turns out that
just adding you to the group is not enough: to make adding effective you
must logout and log back in, as groups' membership is, since the
beginning of *nix systems, evaluated only at login. Of course a reboot
solved the problem, but a simple logout/login would have done the same.
