Description of problem:
If an smb share is a member of a workgroup that has a space in the
name, then when browsing to it in nautilus and then attempting to open
the share, it does not recognise it as a samba share and pops up a
dialog box with the following error message:
>The filename "CARL" indicates that this file is of type "(null)". The
>contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "Samba share".
>If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your
>Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or
>received the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the
>file to the correct extension for "Samba share", then open the file
>normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific
>application for the file.
I have checked this with smb shares that do not have a space in the
workgroup name and they work perfectly

Likely a gnome-vfs2 smb-method bug wrt escaping.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
No response from reporter for a year. There have been a lot of fixes with
regards to escaping since this was reported. Not a security bug, closing per
