Overview of Problem
After creating a share using nautilus-share, the status of the share displayed by nautilus does not persist through logouts or reboots. The actual state of the share is correct but is not displayed correctly in nautilus.
Steps to Reproduce
Open nautilus > Right click select a directory > Sharing Options > Select the following options:
Share this folder
Allow other people to write in this folder
Then reboot or logoff and login again.
Nautilus-share creates the following entry into /var/lib/samba/usershares :
and creates the following "shared" icon:
After repeated reboot or re-login the status reported by nautilus changes to this:
The icon suggests that it is not shared. The Properties > Share tab indicates that it is not shared but the /var/lib/samba/usershares definition has not changed - It is shared, and a remote user does in fact have access.
I have found an ubuntu bug report that address the Share Icon problem but not the properies tab problem:
