Nautilus doesn't automatically remount a network share when a clicking a symlink pointing to the share via .gvfs
The feature request has originally be opened on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/556442 and is still a problem in 3.30
'Steps to reproduce:
- Mount a samba share using Connect to Server... in the Places menu.
- Tell the system to remember the credentials for the share.
- Make a symlink from the home directory to a directory on the samba share so that the symlink points to ~/.gvfs/sharename on host/directory
- Shut down the computer but not the samba server.
- Double-click the symlink in Nautilus.
Expected results: Expected Nautilus to use the share name and host baked into the ~/.gvfs path and the credentials saved to the keyring to remount the share and then open the directory pointed to by the symlink.
Actual results: The symlink is treated as broken.
Additional information: This is a feature parity bug compared to Mac OS X. Finder on Mac OS X remounts an AFP share automatically when the user tries to open an alias that points to a folder on an AFP share that isn't mounted currently.'
