Yes I think you are right, nautilus smb shares it seems are not the
same as those mounted using cifs. I think nautilus may use gvfs-mount
but where it has its config I don't know, and whether it has problems
with smb version I also don't know. I notice there is a file
/usr/share/doc/nautilus-share/examples/smb.conf but whether that is
relevant I don't know. I don't seem to know a lot about this at all.
