Description of problem:
The latest version of gnome-vfs2-smb has built-in functionality to
authenticate to smb shares using kerberos.  However, when I attempt to
access a share through nautilus, I still get a username / domain /
password dialogue window.  I don't have to actually fill in any of the
info, so the kerberos functionality is working, but why do I get
prompted?  Is this in case someone wants to authenticate with
different creds?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Obtain a kerberos ticket (via a regular login or via kinit)
2. Use nautilus to go to a share in the same kerberos realm


Actual Results:  a username / domain / password prompt dialogue appears

Expected Results:  No prompting should happen at all.

My experience with FC4 is the dialog also appears, but leaving the fields blank
will not let me log in. Smbclient -k does work, so kerberos is setup correctly.
