Description Mace Moneta 2003-01-23 19:36:12 EST
Description of problem:

UserX is logged in at the console (using Gnome desktop w/Nautilus) of SystemA. 
UserY is logged in to SystemA from remote SystemB.  
UserY mounts a samba share from SystemB on SystemA, defined in the /etc/fstab of
SystemA as:

//systemb/usery /home/usery/systemb smbfs
users,credentials=/home/usery/.systemb.usery,uid=usery,gid=usery 0 0

with the command: mount systemb

When the mount completes, UserX at the console sees the "SystemB" icon appear. 
However, UserX has no permission to access this icon.   As UserY mounts and
unmounts, the icons flashes on the UserX console.

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

All components at current maintenance level (all errata) for Redhat 8.0.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.See description
3.Profit!  Uh, I mean bug!
Actual results:

Icon appears on console

Expected results:

Icon should only appear if associated directory is owned or accessible by the
console user

Additional info:

Very annoying.
